COME AS YOU ARE
Come as you are with your pain and tears,
God will give you comfort and soothe your fears.
Come as you are with your sins laid bare,
God forgives and surrounds you with his care.
Come as you are, with dreams shattered and torn,
God will restore you and bring a new morn.
Come as you are, the sick, the poor, the weak,
God will provide you all that you seek.
Come as you are, in the dark, bleak night,
God is calling you into the light.
Come as you are, with hearts full of grief and loss,
God gives you hope at the foot of the cross.
Come as you are, to serve, to worship and praise,
God will love and bless you the rest of your days.

It was on line,
when they met for the first time.
She didn't have a clue,
as to what she was to do.
Some things were new,
but that was a few.
She didn't get stern,
even if it was a lot to learn.
Oh, it was a lot of fun,
and she didn't even have to be on the run.
Sometimes there was a lot to say,
and then she would sit and pray.
Everyone was so nice,
sort of like sugar and spice.
Some e-mailed hints,
they were worth a mint.
They were all so caring,
and they did a lot of sharing.
There were days she was blue,
and those were a few.
Reading the letters
made things much better.
There were many more than eight,
that made things so great.
She didn't even have to go out,
so if she wanted she could just shout.
They had to be careful what to say,
and she could do it anytime of day.
So remember when you're on line,
you may meet some for the first time.
