All In One Day

Folk came flocking to him

Eager to be well

Like people at a doctor’s door

A surgery-like swell

All wanting to be well again

Walk this world with ease

The blind the lame the crippled

All kinds of disease


And then he fed the gathered throng

Bread and fish to share

Blessed and broke and gave about

Dinner time was there

Hospital and hostelry

Found there all in one

What a day was had by all

Before the setting sun


I find a lesson there for me

To act the very same

To help the healing of this world

If I play the game

Simple goodness every day

Helps the world to heal

And imparts the gift of happiness

Helps others how to feel
