Blessed Mother Teresa

Oh, noble spirit, you lived to be a boon to mankind,

Being the friend of the sick and the blind,

Carer of the poor,

You founded a leper colony for the lepers,

The disabled, the aged,

You are deeply revered,

For your selfless love, your dedication,

Your bounteous humanity.

Know it dear lady.

The ostracized ones gained the comfort grandly.



You founded the charity of missionaries,

With branches in more than hundred countries

A worldwide symbol of charity becoming,

Prize of Nobel Peace winning.

The Medal of Freedom you were awarded,

Officially declared a saint and beatified

Known as Mother Teresa of Kolkata the blessed.
