A Prayer of Gratitude

God bless
The folks in rest homes,
Whose minds have gone awry.
God bless
The blind, who?ve never seen
A sunset paint the sky.
God bless
The deaf, who?ve never heard
The singing of the birds.
God bless
The dumb, whose silent tongues
Can never utter words.
God bless,
The lame, who cannot walk,
And give them strength to bear
The long and weary, restless days
Imprisoned in a chair.
God, lay Thy healing hands on these,
Keep them in Thy care.
Help us to remember them,
When we kneel in prayer.
Keep us ever grateful Lord,
And when we are hard to please,
Remind us that our Cross is light,
Compared with such as these.
