Heart

To give each person equal hearing

Despite influence or fame;

To let a man be who he is

‘Though his ways are not the same.

 

To admit fault without excuse

And seek to make things right.

To hold judgment ‘til all is known

And facts have come to light.

 

To receive the truth and change course

When answers prove inconvenient.

To show those within your power

Forgiveness and mercy lenient.

 

To treat with love and compassion

Those in suffering and pain;

To walk along the weak and poor

When there’s nothing you will gain.

 

If you do these things and say “Yes”

When at first you hear God’s voice,

Then, a heart of flesh instead of stone

Is yours by grace and choice.
