On A Mission - Poem by Patricia Grantham

He woke me up this morning
To see a brand new day
So grateful for His mercy
I then knelt down to pray

Food to feed the hungry
Alms to give to the poor
A helping hand to someone
Never to want no more

Shelter for the homeless
That have no place to go
A comfort to the lonely
Say how I love them so

Bestow my earthly goods
To those who are in need
Giving of some precious time
Then sow some nurturing seed

Time that is much well spent
Is an important part of living
Show our concern for others
Seek a chance for our giving

Teaching the love of Jesus
To those that's eager to learn
Always going on a mission
My Angel wings I would earn

    You cam't earn you way to heaven.
    But you can make God to smile,
    He then grants you favor
    and you return the smile (Report) Reply
