Compassion is a special word
That defines the Sisters Servants here
Whose service is far beyond compare
And whose dedication deserves a cheer.
Their quiet presence strengthens us
When there’s no one here to dry the tears
Of someone crying in the night
Or to offer prayers and calm our fears.
Their hands reach out to soothe the brow
Or help those searching for the light
Their touch will ease the pain somehow
And reassure us that it’s all right.
Their gentle voice will comfort us
With much encouragement and faith
They understand the suffering
Of our tribulations on this earth.
Their patience is their strong virtue
That bears the burdens we may share
They show their love in all they do
To remind us that we are in God’s care.
