Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield



Curved Corner

Dr. of Souls

I think of a minister as a Dr. of Souls,
      Who listens to the agonies of men,
Who sermonizes for the joy of comforting
      And lessens the pain with-in.

Prescribing a simple prescription,
      That will ease the daily fray,
Strength, for the pitfalls of tomorrow
      And new hope for the problems today.

Not easy, would be such a mission,
      Words put forth and searching wrought,
Could easily fall by the wayside
      If no man was improved by the thought!
