Be Thou His Servant
Will you be the one?
by Joanne Troppello
She walks the city streets at night,
lost and alone.
Why? Someone asks,
because she ran away from home.
He’s an executive always on the rise,
appearing like he’s got it all.
No one even knows,
his heart never used to be so empty and small.
An old woman sits in her rocker,
filled with anger and bitterness.
Her children never stop to wonder
what changed their mother’s joy to sadness.
Will you be the one, I ask
to show the love of Jesus
to the many hurting people
as His love flows freely through us?
