I’M IN NEED

SANDRA P…Ottawa

I’m In Need

I’m thirsty and nobody knows.
I’m hungry and nobody cares.
I’m lonely and nobody comes.
I’m crying and nobody hears.
I’m dying and nobody notices.
I watch, seeing people pass me by.
I sit hoping for someone to stop.
I despair realizing I am alone.
I fall face down in the grime,
I lose awareness of human reach.
So helpless, when Jesus comes to help.
So weak, when Jesus holds me up.
So weary, when Jesus comforts me.
So powerless, when Jesus gives me strength.
So lifeless, when Jesus offers me his life.
So everybody, those who didn’t see.
So everybody, those who didn’t care.
So everybody, those who showed disgust.
So everybody, those who walked away.
So everybody, Jesus is my friend!
