In His Stead

Updated on May 13, 2015

I was hungry—

You gave Me food:

Filled the needy,

Bestowed of good.

I was thirsty—

You poured Me drink:

Blessing many,

Overflowed their brink.

Was a stranger—

You welcomed Me:

Brought lone wanderers

To lodge with thee.

Lacking garment—

You covered Me:

Clothed the strickened,

Eased poverty.

When I was sick—

You visited:

Consoled the weak,

Loved, ministered.
