Would I?

It wasn't a good time to talk on the phone I wanted the world just to leave me alone

I'd suffered distractions for most of the day - so Lord don't let anything stand in my way

I wasn't prepared for the story she told - how old Mr. Brown spent the night in the cold

And wasn't there something that we could all do to give him a hope that is faithful and true

         But if it was Jesus who needed my time

          And lending a hand might cost more than a  dime

          Would I stop to listen and share in the pain

          And help to bring comfort to Him once again


I often passed by on my way out of town - that ominous building of dubious renown

They'd once had a riot within it's stone walls and that's what concerned me when I got the call

A friend of a friend had a nephew in there and wasn't quite sure just how much I would care

But maybe a kind word and listening ear would help calm the anger and comfort the fear

           Now if it was Jesus alone in that place

          A stranger who I'd never met face-to-face

          Would I look outside of my prejudiced mind

          To show Him a love that is patient and kind

                                                                             (love is patient and kind)

The light in her eyes grew progressively dim the word from the doctor seemed hopeless and grim

Her once-vibrant hair was now brittle and dry and just looking at her brought a tear to my eye

But most of the morning she spent all alone in a drug-induced stupor that caused her  to moan

My plans for the day – could they be set aside for holding her hand as I sat there and cried

           But if it was Jesus – the One laying there

          So helpless to live but still needing the care

          Would I take the time to be present each day

          With nothing to do but to sit there and pray


          Would I be like Jesus – the question remains

          To care for those hungry, alone or in pain

          Will I be found faithful or worthy of praise

          When I face Him there at the end of my days

Would I?
