Celebrate now we do

The season of Saint Valentine

A season of sharing our hearts

And expressing love divine

We commemorate the Saint in Rome

Who with Valentine went by name

A Saint martyred for Jesus Christ

Giving all for love and not for fame

“Valens” itself in Roman times

Meant worthy, powerful and strong

Thus this worthy martyred Saint

With our dear Savior does now belong

What is this Day of celebration then

Of candy, roses and sweet greeting?

Is it one of passionate romance

Of feelings powerful yet fleeting?

At its core and at its essence

This Day is far more than these

It is a Day of love pure and holy

One which brings us to our knees

For God Himself is love

Christ embodied love in His Life

He is our beloved Bridegroom

We, the Church, to be His Wife

Oh, glorious is this truth indeed

It touches and warms my soul

When I give my all to Christ

He completes and makes me whole

So strong is the love I have for Jesus

So passionate, so deep, so wide

Yet even greater is His love for me

And for His Church, His beloved Bride

Sing to sweet Jesus, then, on this Day

Sing of His love perfect and pure

Sing of His unending and undying love

In which you and I can rest secure

For greater love has no man

Than to lay down his life for friends

Our dear Lord died for us, mere sinners

We know then His love never ends

This, dear Christian, is the meaning

The heart of the Day we now celebrate

It is a day of sacrifice, of true love

It is a day of expressing agape great

Such is the agape-love expressed

In the martyred Saint Valentine of Rome

He poured out his life as a love offering

For his Father in his Heavenly home

And such is the love shown by Christ

Yes, by our sweet Savior on the Cross

All I have known before meeting my Lord

I consider all merely but waste and loss

So sing, dear Christian, on this Day

Lift your heart to the Eternal One

Raise your voice in songs of praise

To the Father, the Spirit and the Son

For sweet is the love we know in Christ

Precious, priceless, undying and true

A love that He shows today and every day

To me and, yes, dear friend, to you
