Who Shall We Help Today
Poet: John McLeod, © 1982


Who shall we help today, my friends,
Who shall we help today?
A poor-man passing in the road
A word to ease his way?
A kindly thought, a friendly deed
A smile so freely given?
These are the treasures all may give
These are the keys to heaven!

Who shall we help today, my friends,
Who shall we help today?
A sad soul in distress perhaps?
Kneel with that soul and pray;
Show him the love our Father showed
In the way His son was given:
These are the gifts all have to give,
These are the keys to heaven!

Who shall we help today, my friends,
Who shall we help today?
The lame, the sick, all those in need?
So much that one can say
And do to help another's pain
In love's compassion given,
Yours is the gift of giving, friend,
Yours are the keys to heaven!


Out of the Vast
Poet: Augustus Wright Bamberger


There's a part of the sun in the apple,
There's a part of the moon in a rose;
There's a part of the flaming Pleiades
In every leaf that grows.

Out of the vast comes nearness;
For the God whose love we sing
Lends a little of His heaven
To every living thing.



Miracles
by Roy Helton


On these electric branches
The lightnings of the sun
Shall smite as Moses smote the rock
And tides of life shall run.

The miracles of April
God's first and fairest were.
The wonders of the earth are things
Which constantly occur.

"What we are is God's gift to us.
What we become is
our gift to God."

Louis Nizer




It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.
Psalm 18:32



Nearer In Service
Poet: John McLeod


Write these few words
And then put down the pen,
Briefly, I hope, before I write again,
Surely to find in days that are to be
Nearer in service my dear Lord to Thee!

Look to the light
And in your searching friend,
Know that His love will guide to journey's end,
Open your eyes there is so much to see
Nearer in service, my dear Lord to Thee!

Into each heart
Let joy of living spring,
And with a gentle word some kindness bring,
Yours is the gift of giving, choice quite free,
Nearer in service, my dear Lord to Thee!


"This day and your life - are God's gift to you, so give thanks and be joyful always!"

Tools To Help
by


No matter the person,
Or the obsession,
A bag of tools,
Is given with lesson.

Ever person,
Who walks with life,
Needs some tools,
To help get through strife.

Tools to help get through,
Conflicts and addictions.
Tools come in handy,
And help with restrictions.

With conflict the best tool,
Is to find a resolution.
With problems the best tool,
Is to find the solution.

With your unhappiness the best tool,
Is to change your situation.
With someone else's unhappiness,
Help them see their blessings.

With feelings of exhaustion,
Is to stop and take care.
When you lose faith,
Take time to say a little prayer.

With every issue,
You have a helping hand.
That will lead you the right way,
Just let God be part of the plan .

"It matters not how oft you kneel, in attitude of prayer so true, unless inside, where no man sees, your very soul is kneeling too. "
Mary L. O'Hara
