All around we see
Former friends we liked
But knowing us offended them
Or maybe we decline to see
Those others are different
Unlike you or me

Some of us have friends we’ve lost
To hate or fear or death
One thing is sure
Our living is no cure
Jesus loves each of us
And teaches us to love the least

Seeing is believing
Look into your heart
Where are those you said?
Would never ever depart

The truth is Christ
In Him we find our strength
To live with those He sent us to
And let them know we care

You may not succeed
Others have to choose
To care for us
We cannot demand their love

Jesus loves you
His love is true and strong
Unlike the world we live in
Christ will never leave us alone
