Suffering with them – v4

Real empathy for our neighbors
feeling them with us, the others
even our enemy, truly neighbors,
standing in their shoes
as if we were suffering too

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

Carrying our brothers, the others
lifting up our neighbors
healing our sister’s ache
offering loving kindness
in our Savior’s name
