First Holy Communion Song

 

On My First Day

Written by Martin Wright (Parishioner, musician, artist and author) for the children of Christ the King School on their First Holy Communion Day

 

On my first day, when I was born

I lay in safest hands, safe and secure.

And all around, from sea to sea,

The people of the world -

A family to me.

 

And now the time is here,

This time today,

To meet the Lord of all

In this new way.

 

And when I’m grown,

And stand alone,

I hope I’ll always stay

Close as on my first day.

 

I hope I’ll always stay

Close as on my first day.
