Lyrics

St. Anthony, you live a simple life
Through prayer and devotion
In the silence of the morn.
In lowliness and joy you serve the poor
With gentle, caring, loving heart.

Refrain:
St. Anthony of Padua we implore
O teach us how to live the gospel way of life.

You’re chosen by the Lord to lead us on
To the path of life in simplicity, humility and joy.
The spirit leads you on to preach the Word
With visions of fraternity and detachment from all things.

You care and share with missionary zeal.
You heal with gentle love aglow.
We thank you, O Most Holy Trinity
The Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit
Triune yet One God.
You gifted us with St. Anthony
To be your instrument of peace.

(Repeat Refrain, and end…)
to the path of life, in simplicity, humility
and perfect joy.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
St. Anthony, you live a simple life
Through prayer and devotion
In the silence of the morn.
In lowliness and joy you serve the poor
With gentle, caring, loving heart.

Refrain:
St. Anthony of Padua we implore
O teach us how to live the gospel way of life.

You’re chosen by the Lord to lead us on
To the path of life in simplicity, humility and joy.
The spirit leads you on to preach the Word
With visions of fraternity and detachment from all things.

You care and share with missionary zeal.
You heal with gentle love aglow.
We thank you, O Most Holy Trinity
The Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit
Triune yet One God.
You gifted us with St. Anthony
To be your instrument of peace.

(Repeat Refrain, and end…)
to the path of life, in simplicity, humility
and perfect joy.
