I Saw My Brother
I saw a needy brotherWho wept for lack of breadTo give his wife and children.I saw and I felt led … I had a few possessions,Enough to live upon;To part with some of these, I thought,Would help them to live on. And I remembered Him who gaveHis all that I might live:I gave my brother…
