The Prayer of St. Francis

A dedication to Pope Francis.

The touching hymn,’ Make me a channel of your peace’ and otherwise known as ‘Prayer for St. Francis’ was written by Sebastian Temple (1928-1997) who grew up in South Africa and later moved to London, where he worked on news broadcast relating to South Africa. After converting to Catholicism and adopting the Franciscan lifestyle, Sebastian became a Secular Franciscan and spent much of his time composing music for worship. 

He is best remembered for “The Prayer of St. Francis”. 

This is one of my favourite hymns.

Horse Power & Horse Sense


'Horse Power'

'Horse Sense'

which keeps it from betting on people.

Wish Me A Rainbow

Photo by: Tony Fernandes

Wish me a rainbow and wish me the stars
All this you can give me wherever you are
And dreams for my pillow and stars for my eyes
And a masquerade ball where our love wins first prize

Wish me red roses and yellow baloon
And caress us whirling to gay dancing tunes
I want all these treasures the most you can give
So wish me a rainbow as long as I live

All my tomorrows depend on your love
So wish me a rainbow above
All my tomorrows depend on your love
So wish me a rainbow above

Double Rainbow

Photo by: Tony Fernandes

Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

 It's a good thing that when God created the rainbow he didn't consult a decorator or He would still be picking colors. ~ Sam Levenson

Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me.
