Father, the disabled are beautiful people

Father, open our eyes that we would see

The beauty of the disabled in our community

Help those who struggle with disability

To see the compassion of our humanity

Those who cannot see,walk, hear or speak

Have something to teach those who seek

They have such heart

A quality that from us should never depart

They have so much to give

Like others they want a joyful life to live

So when you see the disabled for a job apply

Please do not pass them by

Show you really care

By giving those with disabilities opportunity

Compassion in us to see

Let them know that You will always be there

The cloak of Your forever love You will always wear

  1. Disabilities do not stop them from being who they are. It instead reaffirms God’s purpose for their lives.
    I take the case of Nick, he has bless jus so many persons via his entire life, testimonies and so on. He is the real epitome, to me, of a purpose-driven life.
    I think if he had feet, as we consider feet, he may not have reached the same persons he has today, even without limbs.
    They are a real blessing!

  2. Thanks, Kevin!

    As a parent of children who have a variety of disabilities, I’ve seen everything from amazing compassion to harsh judgement.

    My children have taught me what true love looks and feels like. Some days I still grieve for them, but then I remind myself that in Heaven I’ll get to see them as they really are without the physical and mental disabilities that cloud the images temporarily.
