One young nurse,
Intent on flinging starfish,
Back into life-giving surf,
Ventures out again into the heat.
A useless effort say powerful men,
Bent on fame, they’d change the world,
In an instant with money and flair,
But they don’t know the power of One.
One who empowers the weak of this world,
To wield His brush one stroke at a time,
Hold a hand, look straight into eyes,
Full of pain, lost hope and the fruit of lies.
One who cares to stoop from on high,
To heal the sick, give rest to the weary,
Reaching out in a ramshackle world,
Where chaos spreads its dark, deathly rule.
One who turns evil to good,
Who sends people of change,
To improve one life, preserve many alive,
This One she serves persists throughout time.
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” (3 John :4, NIV)
