Send me someone to love


Lord, when I am hungry,

send me someone to feed;

when I am thirsty,

send me someone who needs a drink;

when I am cold,

send me someone to warm;

when I am sad,

send me someone to cheer;

when my cross becomes heavy,

let me share another man’s cross;

when I am poor,

guide me to someone in need;

when I have no time,

send me someone I can help

for a few moments;

when I am humiliated,

send me someone to praise;

when I am discouraged,

send me someone to encourage;

when I need understanding,

send me someone who needs mine;

when I need to be looked after,

send me someone to care for;

when I think only of myself,

draw my thoughts to another person.
