Me Thinks the Lord be Happy

I could tell you such a story about the rich and of the poor

So sad when some have little and others have much more

Would best if rich could share some

And poor had more to eat

Me thinks the Lord would then be happy

I say to all I meet.

And then there is the tale they tell

I think I heard it well

The rich man took the poor boy in

And shared with him a home

Me thinks the Lord be happy then

As He saw the two men roam.

The lad did grow up big and strong

With him the man could see no wrong

Both love and food was fed him

And ‘twas treated like a son

Me thinks the Lord be happy then

When he saw just what was done.

(Inspired by the thought that so many Americans are hungry and don’t have warm homes to go to.  Look for an outreach center near you.  I have been delivering bagged lunches each month to a local soup kitchen which also provides  medical attention.  These are given to adults who are working and unable to receive meals at the center.  This organization also provides medical attention,  some social service assistance, and serves as a warm place to sleep on cold nights for those without homes or heat.)
