Be Good Samaritans


God wants us to be good Samaritans;
Let kindness flow as rivers from our hearts;
Almighty’s heart fountains out with great love;
Should we not mimic Him who made us all?

The caring God is watching every soul;
Even the beasts in wild care for their kin;
Should not the human heart be better still?
God made man in His own image with love!

Only the gentle wind is breeze welcome;
Only the benevolent turn nobler;
Only the harmless look tall in God’s eyes;
Show mercy and receive mercy from God.

Let springs of kindness spring from human hearts;
Let human endeavors be sanctified;
Let love rule hearts and glorify Lord God;
Let soul be pure and virtuous, sin-free!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
