Saint Mary Mckillop
To Saint Mary McKillop of the cross many Australian Catholics pray
If there is a heaven she is up there today
She lived a saintly existence it does seem fair to say
To help those in need of helping she went out of her way.
In helping Australia's homeless the outcasts and downtrod
She was one who devoted her life to her God
In Melbourne, Portland, Penola, Sydney and Adelaide
Where ever she lived in her mark of goodness she made.
I may live as an atheist but i give credit to where it is due
To her higher self Mary Mckillop was one who was true
She devoted her life to the poor down and out
She lived as a great person of that there is no doubt.
On behalf of Australia's poor people no effort she did spare
The Mary McKillops of this World are rare
The story of her amazing life is now known everywhere
And if there is a heaven she is one who is there.
