All Souls’ Day

All souls unite and let’s be one

On this eve of our earthly sojourn

Take a moment, you and me

To pour beatification and myrrh

The way of our fallen heroes

Who had left this world of woes

Mostly gone before the gong

But awaits our embrace not so long

Raise an altar, upon your heart’s tablet

Rouse their memory in florid droplets

Let their passion quicken in us

The flame for life, we all have lost….

FOR: Yinka Owoeye, Temi Omoniyi and Kikelomo Aminu

Prayer

O God, the Maker and Redeemer of all believers: Grant to the faithful departed the unsearchable benefits of the passion of your Son; that on the day of his appearing they may be manifested as your children; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and ever. Amen
