Suffering with them – v2

Real empathy for our neighbor
even our enemy, truly,
standing in their shoes
as if we were suffering too

Going through their pain
suffering with our neighbors
that we would offer aid
out a depth of feeling

Carrying our brothers
healing our sister’s ache
offering loving kindness
in our Savior’s name
