Love & Kindness

Love’s Garden

by Ellen Robena Field

There is a quiet garden,
From the rude world set apart.
Where seeds for Christ are growing;
This is the loving heart.

The tiny roots are loving thoughts;
Sweet words, the fragrant flowers
Which blossom into loving deeds,
Ripe fruits for harvest hours.

Thus in our hearts the seeds of love
Are growing year by year;
And we show our love for the Saviour,
By loving His children here.

Kindness is the Word

“What is the real good?”
I asked in musing mood.

Order, said the law court;
Knowledge, said the school;
Truth, said the wise man;
Pleasure, said the fool;
Beauty, said the page;
Freedom, said the dreamer;
Home, said the sage;
Fame, said the soldier;
Equity, said the seer;

Spake my heart full sadly,
“The answer is not here.”

Then within my bosom
Softly this I heard:
“Each heart holds the secret:
Kindness is the word.”
