Open your ears that they might hear the cry of the poor!
Open your mouth that it might say words of comfort!
Open your eyes that they really see those who labor and are burdened!
Open your arms that they might embrace all!
Open your hands that they might both give and receive!
Open your soul that it might be filled with tenderness and compassion!
Open your heart that it might truly love as Christ did and at his command!
Open your life that you many walk always in the ways of the Lord!
Be Opened! Ephphatha!
-Rev. Thomas Sas
