Thy Neighbor


Lord you say love thy neighbor as thyself
As we come to you for true wealth
Not storing up our treasures on earth
But coming to you to receive new birth
Treating all as we would like them to treat us
Showing love even when they fuss
We put all faith and trust in you
The one holy and true
As you come and comfort our souls
Giving understanding and filling holes
We lift the cross on our back
And follow not returning or showing lack
Putting you above all first
As your provide water to quench our thirst
Lord while all where tumbling down the mountain
You came and provided a fountain
Cutting down the trees and clearing a path
Marking the trail to escape the wrath
We come to you 
To receive new thoughts and desires
As you give us new life
So we shall escape  death
Some laugh and think this is a game
While others might see it as shame
But Lord I hear you calling thy name
