Our Morning Offering – 22 February – Feast of the Chair of St Peter at Antioch
O Peter, who was Named by Christ!
By Stanbrook Abbey
For the Feast of the Chair of St Peter
O Peter who was named by Christ!
The Guardian-Shepherd of His flock,
Protect the Church He built on you
To stand unyielding, firm on rock.
Your weakness, Christ exchanged for strength,
You faltered but He made you true.
He knew the greatness of your love
And gave the keys of heav’n to you.
Unseen, eternal Trinity,
We give You glory, praise Your name,
Your love keeps faith with faithless men,
Through change and stress, You are the same.
