My Fathers the Monks - Another Version

My fathers the monks of the desert
I wish to live a life like yours (2)
Life of prayer, vigils and tears (2)
You offer to the Lord Jesus
My fathers, my fathers

Father of the monks Abba Antonius
His disciple Abba Macarius (2)
Left everything of worth and value
To serve their faithful Redeemer (2)
My fathers, my fathers

When they were attacked by the Barbarians
No one was afraid or denied his faith (2)
They said our Lord is Jesus Christ
For whom our lives wed sacrifice (2)
My fathers, my fathers

Desert of Sheheet, judge of the heart,
in it, everything beloved. (2)
In it, a path to eternity(2)
and the life of our Lord the Messiah
My fathers, my fathers.

I am a youth struggling in the way
God's word I must learn to obey (x2)
Please pray for me, St. Anthony (x2)
That Christ my abide in me fully
My fathers, My fathers
