By Our Love
Does rain fall on the heads of the homeless?
Does the sun shine on the faces of the mentally ill?
Does music play for the hearts of the physically disabled?
Do ocean waves wash the toes of those undone by drugs?
Does the earth grow food for the stomachs of the poor?
Do trees shade even the misshapen few from the heat?

Of course, times seven, and seven times seven...

And why shouldn't we?
Didn't He?
To the cross by our God we are called to go
And from His nails, for all our fellow man
We are blessed to hang, and by our love be known.
