kegagalan adalah “emas” – pengalaman-pengalaman

Bayi Yesus, dengan  kemenyan ini kupersembahkan

ini, ya Tuhan!.

life.

O Bayi Yesus, dengan mur ini  kupersembahkan
syukurku kepadaMu, ya Tuhan.
Ketika aku lemah, Engkau menguatkanku; ketika
aku jatuh, engkau datung menggendongku. Cinta dan
kepedulianMu adalah mur yang menyembuhkan
setiap luka hidupku.

Take our life as our myrrh of offering to you, O Lord
