A WALK FOR THE POOR
is a ‘cradle’ with His love,
the unspoken languages of our souls,
as we thank Him for the bounty and the blessings in our lives.
A walk for the poor is a ‘journey’ full of His hope and love,
as we embrace the poor in humanity bringing light and life’s beauty.
Oh, my Lord, the Giver of all, I humbly offer Thee...
I beseech, abide in me, and let me walk for the poor tirelessly.
by Cres Ticson
