Lord I love you today and pledge my devotion,
And do as you ask to put love in motion.
Show me a need and connect me to others
Who requires a touch from one of the brothers.
Whose hands are clean and heart is pure,
Accepts inconvenience and delivers the cure.
He knows the call and accepts the task,
To model discipleship and do what you ask.
Come along side and love and to teach,
So our new-born believer will soon go to reach,
Another like him whose need is so great,
He must not tarry as time is getting late.
With passion for caring now graphed inside,
He looks and he searches and watches their eyes,
For hurt and for hunger so long been the norm,
The Word placed within to calm every storm.
Living our life and now looking above,
Longing for purpose and distributing love,
Realizing so many need only a touch,
From a compassionate friend that could unleash so much.
Help me remember as we pass through our days,
It’s not about me, and having my way.
But investing our lives in those walking beside us,
With hurt in their eyes, their hope is inside us.
Getting it out and sharing with all,
Is what He requires its part of our call,
Of living and caring and listening to God,
Following his precepts and being a servant to all.
