A Compassionate Heart

I have eyes that I can see
The work that can be done by me.
I have ears that enable me to hear
The voices of those who live in fear.

I have lips that I might speak
Words of encouragement to all who seek.
I have an alert mind that I might know
When to help the needy that need me so.

I have hands that I am able to do
Some meager, but worthy task for you.
I have the empathy and sincerity to pray
For the impoverished people everyday.

I have this one thing, all else above,
A compassionate heart that I may love.
