|R- One, two, three, four,
five, six, seven
Sacraments of my church,
My gate to the kingdom of heaven,
Where divine glory awaits.
1- A sacrament is a special service
By which we receive special gifts
We feel God's grace overshadow us;
First to start with its Baptism.
2- Three times in water I'm dipped,
Same as Jesus Christ was buried
Out of the font I'm picked,
Like He's risen, that is Baptism.
3- Next is Sacrament of Chrismation.
With Holy Chrism I'm anointed
Thirty-six anointments for confirmation
All my body is sanctified.
4- Third the Sacrament of Confession,
Another word for it is penance.
I confess my sins to Abouna,
And he gives me the absolution.
5- Fourth is the Sacrament of Communion,
When we celebrate the Eucharist;
With my Lord I have union,
I receive His Blood and Body.
6- The Sacrament of Holy Unction,
Whenever we have any suffering,
Prayer and oil have the function,
Of spiritual and physical healing.
7- Sixth is the Sacrament of Matrimony;
Man and woman join in family,
They unite and be one body;
In God's plan everything is holy.
8- The seventh is Holy Orders.
The gift of the Holy Spirit
Is given to who would be clergy,
To continue apostolic service.
