Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
In you I have my treasure – V2 by Raymond A. Foss

The words of the scripture,
the tip of the iceberg, a foretaste
for it is in you that I have my treasure
Your love, your endless, steadfast love
a communion with you, oh God,
my rock, my redeemer, Lord

Without your presence in my life,
I was adrift, on the seas of the world
In you, a voice, to share your message
to reach the ends of the earth
your love, your grace, my joy
on my lips, shared for all to see

Hope in the sacrifice of our savior,
the endless love of the father
the living presence of your spirit
willing to give so much, to share
to bring us home, to you
to forgive our sin through grace alone

Daily you affirm that gift
your grace all around
if we but open our eyes,
all of this, this creation, this earth
this door opened for us, this hope of salvation
by your steadfast love, your endless grace
