As I was working in the kitchen yesterday Peregrine marched in singing. I was so taken with his impromptu song that I had him start over so I could capture the lyrics. Reading them won't be quite the same as hearing them sung with the gusto of a (nearly six-year old) boy, but I hope you'll enjoy it none the less. (That's right my friend, oh yes!)
Don’t let Satan go in either.
The Holy Spirit fruit is not a fruit, oh no.
It’s not a fruit you eat my friend.
The spiritual fruit is not an ordinary fruit.
The patience, kindness, goodness, truthfulness, and self-control.
That fruit is not a strawberry!
It is, in fact- Peace!
That’s what it is, that’s the first fruit, of the Holy Spirit, in heaven!
Do it on earth, also. That’s right my friend!
It’s not a Grape! Oh no, that is right my friend!
Don’t let weeds grow in your heart.
Let the divine liturgy grow in your heart, and grow and grow!
Until you love Him as much as your mom and dad.
It’s not a peach, oh no~ That’s right my friend.
It’s Kindness! It’s kindness! That’s right my friend oh yes!
Don’t let Satan pick your flower and turn it into a weed (that he will put back in your heart.)
I don’t mean your blood heart, oh no my friend! (Not the heart filled with blood that pumps your blood through your body. Oh no~)
I mean the heart filled with love, that heart.
Do not lie. It’ll be makin’ Satin pull out your flower. (The flower of truth!)
