They asked, "Who's my neighbor and whom should I love;
for whom should I do a good deed?"
The Master related a story and said,
"It's anyone who has a need,
yes, anyone who has a need."
There once was a traveler set on by thieves
who beat him and left him to die;
a Priest and a Levite each saw him in pain,
but they turned away and walked by,
yes, they turned away and walked by.
A certain Samaritan then came along
to bind up his wounds and give aid;
he took him to stay at an inn until well,
and for all the service he paid,
yes, for all the service he paid.
I know who's my neighbor and whom I should love,
for whom I should do a good deed;
for Christ made it clear in the story he told:
it's anyone who has a need,
yes, anyone who has a need.
