Jesus made us in His image
and desires blessings all around.
If we obey His commandments,
surely goodness and mercy will abound.
We will become just like Him
and those around us will certainly see
His qualities of love and compassion
as gentleness and kindness cover us with glee.
We'll look past all hurts from others.
Prejudice and pride will pass away.
Closeness and sharing will be normal;
no one will be harmed or held at bay.
Families and friends become a unit
no matter their creed or race.
If we treat one another as Christ treats us,
we'll live, in, and with His mercy and grace.
