ONE - GENTLE - LIFE 

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Written by S.C.Mitchell 

June 2013


One pair of strong but gentle hands - that touched
The lepers - one pair of hands that always showed they
Cared - one pair of hands that lifted up the fallen and the 
Broken - one pair of hands - those same broken lives -
Repaired .

One pair of tender eyes - that saw into my heartache - 
One pair of eyes that knew all about my shame - 
But - those piercing - Holy eyes - did not condemn me -
Those loving eyes - knew all about 
My pain .

One pair of feet - walked across the desert - one 
Pair of feet walked on the stormy sea - and one 
Pair of feet - crossed the many weary miles - to
Reach a lost and wounded soul 
Like me .

One gentle mouth spoke life into my spirit - one
Truth-filled mouth - spoke health into my soul - one 
Peaceful mouth - spoke peace into my turmoil - with 
Words that healed my tortured heart - and made
Me whole .

One loving heart - poured out its life blood for us all -
One caring heart reached to my heart - with its unending
Grace - and bound my wounds - one loving heart threw
Open all the prison doors - and released the captives from
Their hell-bent tombs.

Oh Sacred Heart of God - of wondrous beauty  -
That stooped into the pit - and rescued me -
Forever - I will sing of all your loving mercy - and 
Tell others of Your gracious heart  and love poured
Out for me .

All I can ever say is .....

Thank You Jesus - for Your Grace and Love for me .

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

God bless you all with His heart of love .
