Great Small

‘We can do no great things, only small things with great love.’ Mother Teresa

That quote prods me to share the lyrics from one of the songs I have written for my stage musical ‘The Cross & The Switchblade.’ So here ’tis…



A word that’s stood the test of time

Makes the darkness to shine

A hand that reaches out to mine

A smile that says that you’re just fine.


A child cuddled in your arms

Can teach a frown to make a smile

A solid rock through stormy trials

A drop of sweetness where there’s guile

Where you’re accepted as you are

Whether you are near or far.


Even ‘midst the vodka and drugs

Even when you’re playing with love

Even as you try to find

Satisfaction peace of mind

God accepts you as you are

Whether you are near or far.
