Alone he sat 'neath darkened shroud
And, friendless, wondered why
Why do so many fear my name
And from me try to shy?
No pain's inherent in my touch
Indeed, I bring release
Why have they dressed me in black robes
And stripped my golden fleece?
Why see they not that I am friend
Not one soul have I harmed
Throughout eternity I've served
Why act they so alarmed?
Our Lord to me this role's assigned
How can I then be bad
For I exist as part of him
I'm but a servant lad.
Fears man a boat or car or plane
To traverse space on earth?
I am no different my dear friends
I carry to new birth.
No qualities do I posess
How can I then cause fear
The darkness lies within your mind
You've not learned to see clear.
So dry your eyes and embrace me
Trust in our Lord's design
He sends me not to terrorize
My role is most benign.
