Even When He Grieved by Raymond A. Foss

He healed the sick, ministered to them all
the son a servant to their needs
even when he grieved
the death of the one
the prophet, the one baptizing
in the Jordan, as foretold

He came to the other side
and the people followed,
found him far from home
seeking his healing, his grace
Even while he mourned for his kin
he put his needs below theirs
caring for them in the wilderness

He cured their sick, out of his compassion
fed them, all of them
From five loaves and two fish
out of his servanthood
all were healed, all were fed
even when he grieved.
