Give  Me  Someone
When  I  am  famished, Give  me  someone who  needs  food;
When  I  am  thirsty,  Send  me  someone who  needs  water;
When  I  am  cold,  Send  me  someone to  warm;
When  I  am  hurting,  Send  me  someone to  console;
When  I  am  poor,  Lead  someone needy to  me;
When  I  have  no  time,  Give  me  someone to  help  for  a  moment;
When  I  am  criticized,   Give  me  someone to  praise;
When  I  am  discouraged, Send  me  someone to  encourage;
When  I  need  another's understanding, Give  me  someone     who  needs  mine;
When  I  need  somebody to  take  care  of  me,  Send  me someone to  care  for;
When  I  think  too  much of myself,  Turn  my  thoughts toward  someone else.
