The Gentleness of Christ

Through the sweetest touch of a child,
In the softness of a friend’s embrace,
Amidst your smile and forgiving heart,
I see the gentleness of Christ.

When I turn from you in bitterness,
As my words fly out to hurt,
If I deny our Lord in rebellion,
I need the gentleness of Christ.

When I care for the hurting,
When I quietly accept your correction,
As I humbly overcome your rejection,
I show the gentleness of Christ.

Blessed are the humble. Blessed are the merciful.
Blessed are the peaceful. Blessed are the gentle.
Lord, help us learn this wisdom from above.

The Gentleness of Christ
