Blessed caregiver, St. John of God,
Compassion in your heart, a path you trod,
Selfless service, your life’s great call,
To love and heal, the sick and all.
You tended to the poor, the sick, the weak,
A life of service, for all to seek,
Your hospital, a place of hope,
Where care and love, helped many cope.
A saint of God, with humble heart,
You served the needy, from the start,
Your legacy, a shining ray,
A blessed caregiver, in every way.
St. John of God, your light still shines,
A guiding star, for all mankind,
Your faith and love, forever strong,
In our hearts, your hymn of song.
(Sr. Maria Miller)
