Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
Sovereign by Raymond A. Foss
Powerful, supreme and independent
Creator, ruler
eternal father, mother, sustainer
The one who conjured all from the void
in grand design, and physical laws
heavens and earth, cell and mountain,
beating hearts, and mouths to sing

Gifts you give, give to us
dominion, responsibility
to tend your handiwork
in the brief season
when we, like the plant,
grow, flower, bloom, and die.

Psalm 8
inspired by sermon, "Dominion and Sovereignty"
by the Reverend Peter A. Hey,
Wesley United Methodist Church,
Concord, NH 6/3/07
