the lions who guard the saintsin gratitude to the lions who guard the saints

To the lions who have taken their solemn vows

To keep ever-watchful eyes on all that approaches

To carry concerns and worries so that others may continue without fear

And who bear burdens not their own upon their backs.

For your generosity we offer our gratitude and small sacrifices of time

We bring flowers and wine and wishes for your good health

Prayers for strength of body and mind.

We hope you hold your posts with pride

And remember always that whilst you guard the saints

The saints guard you as well.
