Benevolence

To be the benevolent hand that leads
Be deeply kind and generosity driven
Heed the call of the soul in need
Be true to God’s word
His word was made flesh
His name is Jesus Christ
He is truth and He is love
The wise in heart see
With the eyes of His grace and compassion
They live in the humble place
Sowing seeds of love and new life in others
By bearing the fruits of the Spirit
In the power of The Holy Ghost
Love, joy, peace, forbearance, patience
kindness, goodness,
and self control
Not in judging
But in helping, teaching, and affirming
The good progress in others
Forgetting the stain …
In Gods loving realm remain
Be led to lead selflessly
For in the pureness of love
Sometimes losing is gain
Avow to listen patiently
Scoping the heart’s true pace
Hearing the sound of a frown
Feeling the expression on someone’s face
Lifting up ne’r tearing down
With respect for others who are in pain
To find the true core of the need
We Must listen … With the heart
Listen …
And listen …
Once again

The Sweet Rose of Sharon

He is the Sweet Rose of Sharon
Who suffered for me
To give grace immeasurable
He’s the Sweet Rose of Sharon
No one can compare
And with His grace, with His grace I am free

I shall be like thy Son
Through the power of the cross
Conformed in His image of love
As I Abide in the vine
He brings forth my fruit
With my Spirit renewed I shine

With the water and the blood
To replenish my soul
Day to Day He is my sunshine above
With His sap running through me forever I grow
The Sweet Rose Of Sharon in bloom
