Footfall

Sometimes the footfall seems incessant,

a challenge to our selfish greed,

how can we clothe and house such numbers,

our fears well up and veils their need.

 

Yet every living person coming

should have a share of all our wealth,

but dare we give without a limit

to meet another’s need of health?

 

This is the challenge set before us,

to greet each stranger as a friend,

to share God’s love, that knows no limits,

until all fear and hunger ends.
