Ebenezer's Cry

I heard old Ebenezer cry,
"Let me do some good before I die!"

That truth rang out,
It jarred my heart,
Why wait till the end
Before you start?
Let me do something good
Where I am today,
In small acts of kindness
 That come my way;

Let my heart reach out
And meet the  demands
In the eyes of the needy,
Not just in their hands;
For a penny put in an outstretched hand,
Cannot bring the healing
That a kind word can;

The joy in that healing
Is a wonderful gift;
That true Christmas spirit,
Has the power to lift,
To lead us to wonder,
To  answer  love's cry,
"Feed me with kindness and I'll never die!"
