LYRICS

Child of the ordinary, faith so extraordinary
Served the Lord with humbleness away from worldly gaze
Gifted with innocence lifelong obedience
From this ‘little flower’ came a garland of praise

Therese of Lisieux
gave her life in prayer
and lived the little way
Therese of the Child Jesus
taught us to become like little children
That we might learn the mysteries
of your kingdom

Child of the ordinary, blessed with humility
Promise of glory for a child of cheerful face
Heavens gates have welcomed her,
hell had no claim on her
Pray for us Therese O Little Child of Grace
