Sacrifice

Sacrifice

When someone asks you

To walk with him one mile

Try your best to go two

And make that person smile

When someone brushes past

And takes the first place

Try your best to shake his hand

And not to save your face

When someone puts you down

And you feel like talking back

Just hold your words and keep it in

There is nothing you could lack

When someone says something hurtful

Just go home and cry

And soon let it melt away

Let the sorrow die

When someone pushes you around

And makes you be his slave

Then love him and comply

For a path of learning it will pave

For sacrifice is the way to live

My pastor preached today

That just as God loves us

We should love others the same way

For sacrifice resolves conflict

It mends the broken heart

And helps develop friendships

That would never fall apart

For sacrifice moves cold hearts

The strongest of its kind

And brings someone to faith

Change a stubborn mind

For sacrifice shows God’s love

Just as Jesus lay down to die

He gave us the greatest blessing

For love was the reason why

For sacrifice is the best way

To win someone else’s soul

And let them know of Jesus

And experience love untold

To let someone have your way

Will never fail to make you sad

But the rewards are so much better

Sacrificial love is never bad

When someone shatters your glass

Don’t leave the pieces on the floor

If not they’ll remain and cut you

Making your wounds ever sore
