Default Who Cares?

Iím the least of the brethren but GOD knows my name
He has taken away my sin and He covers my shame

Sin had itsí day and the scars left behind tell a story
Of one who had no hope transformed by His glory

I have not forgotten who I was and what I have done
Or how I was treated (deservedly) people would shun

Nothing about me draws attention Iím easily ignored
I still find myself alone even though Iíve been restored

I have tried to find my place but I never seem to fit in
For a season I may belong but then Iím moved again

But goodness and mercy seems to always follow me
Healings and miracles of grace I am privileged to see

Little ones grow in their understanding of who they are
Tears slip from my eyes as I watch prayerfully from afar

I do the little I can even though I know I am not the best
It always seems sufficient bringing others into their rest

And yet my heart breaks for all the needs unmet
For those who fell among us who we seem to forget

Cries from the wilderness or behind the gates of hell
Each one has a story if only they had someone to tell

Out here there are no heroes and no way to be known
But it is in these places burning bushes have grown

1Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. ... Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. Matthew 25:40 & 45
