“Whatever you do to the least ones of these,
I tell you in truth that you do unto me!”
Lord Jesus, you taught us! May we learn anew
That when we serve others, we also serve you.

When we reach to others in quake-stricken lands
And offer our hearts there, and offer our hands—
We notice, Lord Jesus, the gift of your grace:
We see, in the crowds of the suffering, your face.

“Lord, when did we see you?” Your teaching is clear
That when we serve others, we’re serving you here.
And when your church heeds you and helps those in pain,
Then out of the chaos, hope rises again.
