Raymond A. Foss Poems

From Her Words – Song by Raymond A. Foss

She wondered, noticed,
he was taking notes in the sanctuary
While she was preaching, sharing the parable
treasures found, and their response
What would you give? What would you sell?
To hold the treasure as your own
How would you hold that treasure in your hands?

His hands, writing a hymn, an echo of worship,
the words of the Gospel, her words, blended
a gift of grace, a blessing for us to share
Two days later, a hymn, born of the scripture
of the sermon, of the inspiration of God
What would you sell? Yes, what would you sell?

August 1, 2008
Based on emailed note about new hymn
by F. Richard Garland,
“What Would You Sell”,
which was written about Matthew 13: 31-33; Matthew 13:44-52
and the sermon by Reverend Lori Eldredge,
“Buried Treasure”, July 27, 2008,
North Kingstown United Methodist Church
