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.
