But for His Grace Empty But for His Grace

...................................But for His Grace But_fo10



I look through my window tonight, worrying for all those living souls.....
out there, just out of sight......
.............Father, please . . .

That youth scrunched under a bridge.....
sleeping a dead man's slumber,.....
this weather too cold.....
for even a mother's safekeeping......
.............I ask of You, look . . .

In a dark alley hidden from thugs and murderers,
a slow-minded man is reduced to cardboard covers,.
hiding his inadequacy from humanity's barrier...............
.............see them . . .

Those whom You love too.
Those irresolute,
clinging to nothing more
than a chance to live this cold night through.

They are not as nature; .....
wildness in cold dens with prearranged slowed heart beats......
They-are-us-but-homeless.....
women, children, men.....

.............bend Your heart, Father . . .

toward those less hopeful than we......
Force us to look through our soul's window.....
and mirror the compassion You freely gave -.....
Your Son's love, our only safe shadow......
Help us LOVE them warm......
. . . But for His grace, there go I . . .
