Raymond A. Foss Poems

The Cantor by Raymond A. Foss
He was our cantor,
modeling the responsive lines
to his homily on faith.

Echoing, joining him,
in remembering the mantra
the words of faith
he repeated over and over
in traveling to her bedside

The woman he loved
traveling those many miles
to her side
at the end of her days

The words of trust, of faith
in the sustaining, revealed
love of God, in scripture,
the lives of the saints before us
the living of our days

Romans 4:13-25 & Hebrews 11:1-10
This poem is about the lines of a hymn he sang
for 32 days, 60 miles each way, from his home
to the hospital bedside of his wife; a hymn he shared
with the congregation at the end of the sermon, “Hearing Faith”,
by the Reverend Orin D. Watson, retired ordained
elder with the Illinois Great Rivers Conference
of the United Methodist Church, a pastor for over
60 years, and a wonderful witness to faith.
