Lyrics

Saint of happy birth,
Protector of life,
Fight the culture of death
Bring the good news of life.

Chorus:
Friends of Gerard, pray to St Gerard
Pray do not delay.
He is our friend in need, oh yes, and our friend indeed.
Friends of Gerard, pray 
Pray do not delay.
He is our friend in need, oh yes, and our friend indeed.

Patron of good confession,
Grant us redemption.
Help us in our weaknesses,
To be Christ's witnesses.

Prayer angel answer
Teach us now God's will.
Great contemplative answer
We want to do God's will.

Saint of happy birth,
Protector of life,
Fight the culture of death
Bring the good news of life.

Chorus:
Friends of Gerard, pray to St Gerard
Pray do not delay.
He is our friend in need, oh yes, and our friend indeed.
Friends of Gerard, pray 
Pray do not delay.
He is our friend in need, oh yes, and our friend indeed.

Patron of good confession,
Grant us redemption.
Help us in our weaknesses,
To be Christ's witnesses.

Prayer angel answer
Teach us now God's will.
Great contemplative answer
We want to do God's will.
