Raymond A. Foss Poems

To Jerusalem by Raymond A. Foss

The wandering, the itinerancy, over;
his face set to Jerusalem
knowing the road, the way
the cross before him
The shame, the suffering, the sheep to be scattered
Fully aware, choosing the nails
humble savior, servant-king
going, purposefully, forward
knowing what was to come
submitting himself nonetheless
choosing the thorns, the way, the cross;
his face set toward Jerusalem
the same steps we follow still
in remembrance of his mighty acts
leading us, with him, with them
from ashes to heaven
