Words: Shirley Gale 1936-

All through the ages old

the Church must recognise

the women in its saintly fold,

their special gifts and wise

Their strength and hope and love

they shared in ages past.

And bring such gifts to modern Faiths.

Their works will surely last.

We now proclaim their Faith;

in mighty works they wrought,

against all obstacles they worked

to prove the Faith they sought.

For women in our world

we now give thanks and praise.

Their contributions wise and strong;

their special gifts display.

To God the Father, Son

and to the Spirit, One,

we give our thanks and gratitude

for great things wisely done.
