Prayer from Colossians (I never fail to remember you in prayer)

This hymn is based on Paul's first letter to the Colossians (Colissians 1). 

It was written byAustralian Roman Catholic priest, liturgist and composer Frank Andersen MSC.

It was originally published in Rising Moon, and then in the Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC collection, which is still available.

The tune was written by Fr Andersen:  it is in a minor key (Em in the original printing), with a 4/4 time signature.  The tune starts with a chorus (first notes in Em are E-EE-E-D), and this is repeated after every verse.

I never fail to remember you in prayer,
Giving thanks to God for you.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY I never fail to remember you in prayer giving thanks to my God for you.
Ever since the time I heard of your faith in Jesus Christ my Lord.
In Jesus Christ my Lord. In Jesus Christ my Lord.

1 We ask that God will give to you
the fullest knowledge of God’s will
so you will lead the kind of life
which the Lord expects of you.

2 May you have within your heart the strength
to bear your circumstances with joy.
To thank the Father for that gift
and to live within that Light.
