My Song of Today

This hymn is based on the French-language poem 'Mon Chant d'Aujourd' by St Thérèse of Lisieux, adapted by Mike Stanley (1965-2013) from the translation by C L Emery.

It was commissioned by the Roman Bishop’s Conference of England and Wales at the time of the visit of the relics of St Therese to England, Sept-Oct 2009.

The tune is also by Mike Stanley.

Sheet music is available for purchase on the CJM Music website.

The words are copyright, and cannot be reproduced here. They can be seen on the video above, and are available on this website. A rough outline is:
1  Oh! how I love Thee, Jesus! my soul aspires to Thee –
... Today, dear Lord, today.

2  What care I for tomorrow? Whatever it may bring;
... Today, dear Lord, today. 
3  O sweetest Star of heaven! O Virgin, spotless, blest,
... For this brief passing day! 
4  Soon shall I fly away, to praise you my desire
... Th’eternal, glad today!
