To bless and encourage, to comfort, uplift,

That is the prayer of my heart;

To care for the needs of a sister or brother,

With strength and hope to impart. 

To carry a burden, to lighten a load,

To give them a shoulder, a smile,

To help them see Your love encircling them,

Helping to walk the next mile.

This is my prayer and the wish of my heart,

A love that others may see,

And as I’m uplifting and comforting, Lord,

I pray they’ll see You more than me.
