St. Valentine, St. Valentine

(Sung to the tune of “O’ Christmas Tree” a.k.a. “O’ Tannenbaum”)

St. Valentine, St. Valentine,
This is your song; this is your rhyme.
You gave your blood in ancient time
With love of Christ your only crime.
Now what of that great memory?
Have we honored your history?

St. Valentine, St. Valentine,
Forgive these vain festivities.
With diamonds cut from poverty
And lips once red now chocolatey
And lovers loving without love,
How do you view us from above?

St. Valentine, St. Valentine,
What is it that you’re thinking of?
Surrounded by the martyred saints,
Who shed their blood without complaint;
Do you look down and blush with shame
To see how we have used your name?

St. Valentine, St. Valentine,
Oh no, you did not die in vain.
Many still find your Savior too
And then we find the real you
And are encouraged when we find
Our brother, dear Valentine.

(Written by Abel Prudhomme)
