The Mark of Priestly Bliss (Audiophile)


Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Arnold Zamora

Arranged by Arranged by Romeo C. Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

A priest forever, a priest for life
Called to serve, to live and die.
Through many years and happy tears,
God's joy abounds, His grace supplied.

A priest for always, a priest I am,
In poverty I am to be;
A good example for all to see -
Salt of the earth, light to be seen.

You called me to proclaim your goodness to the world,
Make peace with everyone, uniting all as one;
May all the sacraments, in your most holy name,
Lead us to holiness - the mark of priestly bliss.

A priest for Christ, a priest for love,
A priest for all, that's who I am;
One blessed vision in Christ our God
For all his chosen, anointed hands.

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

May all the sacraments, in your most Holy Name,
Lead us to holiness - the mark of priestly bliss.

A priest of God... a priest I am!

Romeo! Romeo! is a versatile performer-songwriter from Bohol, Philippines who has played with so many different bands of different genre since the early 80s. For quite sometime he performed on different gigs in Bohol, Cebu, Manila and Japan 'til he decided to settle down and just focused on family life. Still performing today, most recently with the young generation of hip hop bands, Romeo! Romeo! made a successful shift from being a pop & rock guitarist to an all-around keyboard player, a move that helped him caught up with today's younger players and performers. For more than 10 years now he's also tried the field of songwriting and arranging, and producing records to help other budding songwriters and musicians produce their own radio-friendly records in this highly competitive field of the music industry.

This 2009 promises a new and exciting time for Romeo! Romeo! as he ventures into songwriting collaboration with New Orleans-based Boholano priest-songwriter, Fr. J. Roel Lungay. As both of them would wryly say, "We're going country this time! God help us!"
