Loving Thy Neighbor

Written by: Mark Goodson

When the dew drops gather and drop as fallen rain
As the night’s fog lifts its blanket of gray
When the first light of morning’s sun gives ray
I awake to face yet another glorious day
Be the cheerful light that shines
Give the best to all that you find
Speak the words of grace divine 
Let your worries diminish and be you kind
Hold close abreast your love for Lord
Work for truth so true you may afford
Sing the praises of who made thee
Worship in spirit and God will not flee
Give unto others as your journey unfolds
Bless your children with stories told
Play the child’s game of bluff blindfold
And in your old age the child will console
To live your moments in testament of faith
Help the less and praise the Great
For in so doing befriended as first mate
The grace of thy neighbor knows thee by name
Your walk in the Lord his kingdom to gain
