When He came that starlit moment,

Long ago that holy night,

Many wondrous gifts were given,

Filling us with hope and light.

Dewdrops on a leaf He noticed,

Or an insect on a stem.

He sensed people's needs and knew

Precisely when was touched, His hem.

Can we love as Jesus loved? 

Can we comfort, soothe and heal?

Can we be the gentle ones who

Care how other people feel?

 

Jairus came in tears and pleaded

For his only daughter's life.

Jesus felt his spirit, full of

Pain that pierced Him like a knife.

When they said the girl was dead

He gently told them not to weep.

He could sense her child-like spirit

And He woke her from her sleep.

Can we love as Jesus loved? 

Can we comfort, soothe and heal?

Can we be the gentle ones who

Care how other people feel?
