Wake up! But it is not time. It is still early.
You will not hear me say such words, no, not at all
Time was when I was a young adolescent
and it was easy to sleep for hours on end
I was growing up, and I needed to rest more, or so I thought
Wake up! I learnt that it is important to be disciplined
And if I have grown by leaps and bounds,
I have to attribute it to good spiritual direction
I have to thank the one who taught me the heroic moment
What is this all about?
To wake up and make no excuses
I always decide the night before and seek God’s grace
And praise God, He never fails the one
who sincerely desires to do His will
Thanks be to God for our Lady of Fatima,
for the saints
and for all you who pray for me!
Wake up! Yes, I will!
