A Servant's Heart

A Servant's Heart It was on the road to Jericho A Samaritan did compassion show A great example, he did bestow "A Servant's Heart" A cart near full, in the check-out line "Go ahead, - your items are less than mine" She said to the elderly lady, just behind "A Servant's Heart" Because of an injury he was going through He could not mow the lawn, he knew A neighbor said: "this I will do" "A Servant's Heart" The funeral brought her many tears A different lifestyle, brought many fears Words of comfort, came from her peers "A Servant's Heart" Of his lofty status, everyone knew Higher positions, were very few Yet the down-and-out, he catered to "A Servant's Heart" The medical report, was not good Her unmasked grief, we understood Compassion he gave, all that he could "A Servant's Heart" As I trudge on each coming day It's vital that I always pray That in word and deed I would display "A Servant's Heart" The most lofty position, I might derive In no way could it contrive With - Mark: ten, forty four and five "A Servant's Heart" Colan L Hiatt = 03-09-13 © All Rights Reserved
