Give us a heart for the hopeless,
The weary and wounded,
For all who are hungry, helpless, and poor.
Let us see the sorrow,
The pain and the heartache
That all the abandoned endure.
May we reach out to the broken,
the beaten, the battered,
To all who have fallen, disgraced and ashamed.
May we be a comfort, loving forgiving and
Offering grace in Your name.
To the last, to the lost, to the least of these,
Let us be Jesus today.
Randy Gill, 2007
