Donor Prayer

I gave my blood; Christ gave His.
I gave a pint; He gave all.
The needle is small and sharp; the nails were large and dull.
The table soft, relaxing; the cross rough, painful.
The nurses kind and gentle; the soldiers cruel and mean.
The crowd applauds my sacrifice; “They that passed by reviled Him.”
Mine is O-Positive. His for positively all.
Mine, at best will prolong a life for awhile …
His, without doubt, saved all … forever!
