Super-Heroes Galore



We see the caped Crusader
We speed the Batmobile
And Cat Woman second storey
It all seems quite so real.
Iron Man with jet power
And Venom frothing rage.
The superheroes catch our eye
They take up centre stage.
But truth, we know, all fiction.
And not the cure of heart.
That neighbour who shows
Kindness, fair
He has the focal part.
To undergird the suffering
To comfort, helpful phrase.
He is true superhero
And lightens all our days.
We take it oft for granted.
He doesn't strain for praise.
A Friend in any weather
With healing in His Rays. (Malachi 4)
