The Beggar

O gracious God, help me to see

each beggar by the road as me,

with hope’s last flame an outstretched hand

for water in a desert land.

And grant this answered prayer today,

for strength to walk the weary way

with others, so that they would see

Your Spirit come alive through me.

In such a way, the lost are found,

the common path made Holy Ground

because You love this world and me

enough to share our poverty.
