In the poorest parts of Africa, children suffer and die from treatable causes"
Meticulously refashioning the scurvy limbs of a child,
Artful removing the blinding cataracts of a mother and
perfecting the face that once held a globular facial tumor;
I see hope there.
Faith and virtue extends in the hands of the medical crew
to the needy and poor after long waits for help.
A lame man now walks unaided.
I see hope in his eyes..
Mercy travels to many ports reconstructing body organs
Performing life saving surgery in lands with no resources.
and saving lives while transforming nations.
I see hope in that.
Our Messiah came as a Mercy ship two thousand years ago.
A sinless perfect Holy Man who gave up kingship for a time,
to suffer a shameful death.
Our hope lay in a cross.
By meticulously and artfully removing all our sin,
Our Father kept His promise*.
His Kingdom came; reclaiming His lost inheritance.
We now have Hope and it's Him.
