"When I Have Need" (by Joe DiMino)

When I have need,
First I see
If I can still do for others-
No portion of joy in me
If not share for sisters and brothers-
No health in me
When one of His fold is ill-
No wealth in me
If any are lost still…

For me it is about duty…
My joy in service Divine-
Small portion of You
Greater than total of mine;
All health
Is Your abiding complexion;
Within you all found
Your love unknowing rejection-
