Franics, Guide Our Way

With glowing light sent from above,
O Francis, how you guide our way!
Your virtues and example pure
Show us the path to heaven's day.
Amidst the graces of your life
Your charity sheds brightest fire:
How many of the poor it fed,
Filled many hearts with Christ's desire.
Urged on by zeal and charity,
You preached in town and countryside,
Proclaiming all God's mysteries
To poor and rich. both far and wide.

Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be perfect, go sell all what you have and give it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." (Matthew 19:21)
