CHORUS
On the pilgrimate to the house of the Lord, take me into your house, 
When I am sick and weavy, you come to restore my health.

VERSE
My walk on earthly life on journey of pilgrimate
I am homeless and you take me into your home
When I am in prison and you visit me
I am hungry and you feed me with bread and wine.

BRIDGE
Praise the Lord, Jesus Christ,
All the things you do for us is all good.

VERSE
Gather together in bread and wine
In the house of the Lord I praise you, Christ,
All day long I sing the song of praising
On earth I hear the man comes for our salvation.

VERSE
Be joyful when we all in the house of the Lord
There is no more pain and suffering 
So praise the Lord and glorify him in heaven
With his Father Son and Holy Spirit.

Hallelua, Hallelua, Hallelua!

Inspiration for song lyric

My inspiration to write this song lyric is through the services of Providence of God.

Providence Health & Services

Providence Health & Services sounds like a very good organization. I visited their website. I can see how your lyrics were inspired by their mission statement:

"As people of Providence, we reveal God's love for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service."

Thank you for reminding us of the words of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew:

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, and I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you took me in. I was naked and you clothed me. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you came to me."

Doing "works of mercy" (both corporal and spiritual) is a good thing. We should not hoard our bags of gold but give freely to those in need.

Compassion is truly needed, especially in the midst of our great cultural divide as the secular clashes with the sacred, and "the ego" struggles to find time for "the other."
