A woman of prayer, a woman on Mission
A woman in constant union with God
A woman whose actions sprang forth from God
Our foundress Adelaide de’Cice

Spending hours, before Blessed Sacrament
She fasted and prayed, for answers to cries
Searched for guidance, to discern His Holy will
To venture into a new way of life
Took every step, only holding His hand.

Spouse of Jesus, Sealed by grace of God
Outpouring charity to persons in need
Depriving herself, she went ahead serving all
A tireless nurse, Social worker too
Contemplative in every action

Prosecuted, for preserving works of faith
When practice of faith, was threatened to death
Hundreds of poor, stood witnessing in the court
She’s the mother, of us, the poor.
‘It is the lord’ was her watchword

Chosen by God, To Found our Congregation
Daughters of, the Heart of Mary
In the midst of, the French Revolution
Religious life, she preserved
Standing for Christ, a spark in darkness

Adelaide Cice, we your daughters seek
Intersession to follow Jesus
Daring to respond, to the needs of our times
Opting to reach the unreached of all
Walking with God, to be His love-alone
