Love's Only Hope...

Love's only hope is a vessel like us
to work through and reach out
So that people can trust
Who we proclaim as our God
and King
But to show proof through Love
Is a difficult thing
We desire to change others
to be more like us
But acceptance and grace
Is the ultimate must
We out of habit
Think that there's only one way
To minister God
In this world today
Exclusive and closed
Is what we can't be
God has created
His children to be free
So let's make it a point
To keep Love Alive
Through words and kind acts
And reaching outside
To the hurting and lost
To the needy and grieved
It's the only way
That people can see
Jesus Alive
