Undeserved Kindness

How tenderly you cared for me
when you found me broken on the road
did lift me up gave me your own cup
removed from me my heavy load
You dressed my wounds with healing balm
every injury you sought repair
I do not think I'd be alive today
without your love and finest care
You took me in to your own home
every hurt did you seek to ease
a lifetime of their damage done
the bruise and cuts of the abusive
All the words that struck like whips
not a place on me untouched
I cower and cringe like an animal
back against the wall I've clutched
When I cried you sat by my side
gently held me in your embrace
your patience here coaxed my fear
till I could look you in the face
I would follow you where 'ere you go
just to hear the kindness of your voice
where you live I will make my home
there to learn your ways my choice
To lay in pain was deaths refrain
but instilled a desire to life
but promised me that I would see
a world where lived no strife
So in my mind I'm no longer blind
you will achieve this reality
for I know if I live like you
a life in paradise will be
For all the wrong you sought to heal
for within the joy of heart I feel
I cried when I saw a body malformed
the ridicule of the mean those they scorned
You were hard of hearing could barely see
but the schoolyard kids laughed heartily
so many places for lessons to learn
but only yourself was your concern
It was long ago I left you behind
to pursue and learn the gentle mind
no interest have I to follow the crowd
of the livin' large and out loud 
Luke 10:
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[e] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
