The acts of the Apostles by Raymond A. Foss

He foretold, in boldness, in truth
the acts of the Apostles, greater than his own
for he was leaving this earth, rising, returning
going back to the father, we to carry on
We timid, fearful followers;
but he knew more of the story
the power of Pentecost, transforming
changing believers into leaders,
hearing the message of God’s love
and the salvation of the savior
feeling the fire of God’s endless love
boundless and without merit
loving us while we are yet sinners
over and over bringing us into his embraces
the acts of the Apostles, down through the ages
bringing the sheep into the pasture
the churchyard of the shepherd
the garden of the master
