Treasure Island

Roxanne Dubarry

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

Where there is...


Where there is hatred;
Let us show Christ's love,
shining downward upon us,
from heaven's lofty heights above.

Where there is war;
Let us promote peace on
earth, and good will
towards all men. A-men!

May all mankind believe
in the brotherhood of man
and woman.

Where there is hunger;
Let us provide food
for the hungry,
and hope for the hopeless.

And then The Lord Most
High will truly bless us!

Where there are homeless;
Let us provide shelter
from the storms of life.

And let us show them
the pathway to eternal life
in our beloved Lord and
Savior- Jesus Christ!

Where there is famine
and poverty;
Let us show compassion
and mercy.

Let us lend them a helping
hand even though
we might not understand.
They endure suffering
and pain, it is all too
plain to us.

Where is under employment,
or unemployment;
Let us provide job
training and opportunties
throughout all of our
comunities.

Where there are lost souls;
They are more precious
to God than silver or gold.

Let us lead them unto:
the way, the truth,
and the light to
eternal life! A-men.

Love in Christ Jesus!
