Looking, listening and loving…
are skills we all need to learn;
if we wish to live to the fullest,
and help others by showing concern.
Looking for ways to encourage:
listening, for ‘unspoken’ needs.
Loving all people, through critical times,
strengthening them with prayer and kind deeds.
Opening our eyes to the promise…
of what’s possible when we believe.
Eager to serve with a purpose,
we are blessed as we trust and achieve.
Our looking, listening and loving…
calm the fears of a most troubled mind.
Christ loves us, as sister and brother:
be like Him, strive to heal humankind!
