Wordman Creates Special Promotion for MEO

Since its beginning in 1958, Marian Educational Outreach has worked faithfully in the Evansville Diocese to teach children with special needs.

To further the recognition of their good work, I answered a request to compose a song for their 50th anniversary event in October.

To My Teacher

I want to find the words to sing an awesome song
And share it with the world my whole life long
I want to bless the night and bring my faithful spark
To join the stars that help us brave the dark

I am growing because you’re helping me
I am becoming who I am meant to be
I am teaching you as you are teaching me
There is so very much we’ve yet to do
And so much more to see.

I want to plant a seed for peace to bloom and grow
And raise a garden green where good will overflow
I want to build a house where Love will come to live
And show us all that can be done when people give.

I am growing because you’re helping me
I am becoming who I am meant to be
I am teaching you as you are teaching me
There is so very much we’ve yet to do
And so much more to see
And so much more to see
