Sounds of laughter

Reflections, as from our founder, Wellesley Bailey

As I looked into their eyes, Lord, I heard you call;
felt their sorrow heavy upon my heart;
saw their loneliness as they hoped for healing
and waited patiently for help.
By now, I knew faith’s obligation:
having begun with you,
I could not then refuse your guidance
when it came… and there they were,
an unexpected group, sharing the
sorrows of leprosy and simple joys of faith
on tiptoe waiting for a miracle. . . .

. . . Listen, as you read.
Sounds of laughter carry far
when night has lasted long and cold
and now the sun has risen at last
With healing in his wings.
