We Need - Poem by Richard Merrell

Love is that which people need
Hatred tears them apart
'cause the love of which I speak
Is an attitude of the heart.
It bears another's burdens
Understands their plight
Cries with the other person;
And comforts with all might.
Sees not an evil jidgement
Though this may well be true
But covers sin in gentleness
And seeks only to renew.
Can never be rejecting
Sin it does abhor
But always will, in meekness
Another one restore.

Now this love can stand apart
And rejoices in the truth;
Who can reject another -
Is not His Cross love's proof?
