For the 3rd Week - En

The Third Sunday of the Great Lent

Refrain:
Blessed are those who have mercy,
Who give to the poor and fast and pray,
The Holy Spirit will fill their hearts,
The Son will show them mercy on Judgment Day.

Or

Blessed are those who have mercy,
From God they shall obtain mercy,
On Judgment Day Christ will set them
apart,
May His Holy Spirit fill all their heart.

There was a man who had two sons,
Working with him in the house they grew,
After his death all that he had,
Was to be divided between the two.

The younger son said to his father,
Give me now my share of what you own,
Soon after that he took what he received,
And went far away to live on his own.

He spent his money by living in sin,
With youth who came to have fun with him,
Not long after, he lost all he had,
The future seemed so gloomy and grim.

Blessed are those ...

A famine came throughout the land,
His friends left him when the money was gone,
He looked for a job to feed himself,
For a long time he could not find one.

He than got a job on a pig farm,
And gladly shared of what the swine ate,
Sorrow and pain soon filled his heart,
He became lonely and sadness filled his heart.

He said to himself that was a mistake,
To leave my loving father home,
I was living in comfort and peace,
Now I am an outcast, the land I roam.

Blessed are those ...

The servants in my father's house,
Have better food than I have to eat,
I hardly can live on the swine's food,
In my father's home living was sweet.

I wish I could go now back home,
And tell him in the past we didn't get along,
I sinned against you and heaven,
I know now that I have done you wrong.

Please take me back, I beg of you,
I lost everything and have no place to go,
Consider me a servant in your home,
A son I don't deserve to be, I know.

Blessed are those ...

When the son left the father was sad,
Wondering always what was his son's fate,
He was hoping to see him once again,
For long hours he would sit by the gate.

The father saw his son from afar,
Coming home tired and walking slow,
He ran, embraced and hugged his boy,
And said, "Come to me, I missed you so."

The son then cried, I'm not worthy,
I do not deserve in your sight to stand,
I sinned against you and heaven,
Please take me as a hired hand."

Blessed are those ...

The father said, Youre my flesh and blood,
You'll always be to me a son,
He ordered for him to get new shoes,
A ring for his finger, and a robe to put on.

The fattened calf we shall eat today,
Let joy and happiness in this home abound,
My son was dead and now is alive,
To me he was lost, but now is found.

The eldest son with his father was upset,
And said to him with eyes full of tears,
You are unfair to your good son,
You gave me nothing throughout the years.

Blessed are those ...

Your prodigal son wasted his share,
While I worked for you like a slave,
For him a feast you have prepared,
A goat for my friends you never gave.

The father said, All I have is yours,
I appreciate that you're always here,
Please understand a father's heart,
You are both to my heart so dear.

God always calls those who drift and say,
My arms to you are open and wide,
Even if you're lost and call on Me,
You'll always find Me by your side.

Refrain:
Blessed are those who have mercy,
Who give to the poor and fast and pray,
The Holy Spirit will fill their hearts,
The Son will show them mercy on Judgment Day.
