By the Name of Jesus by Raymond A. Foss

By the name of Jesus, so he healed
so he reported boldly
changing his world
Standing tall, erect
taking in a breath, no longer trembling
proclaiming to all,
to the Rulers of the people and the elder,
that he had healed
by the name of Jesus

So different, this Pentecost-filled
this flame-fired apostle of Christ
Bearing witness.
No longer the timid disciple,
cowering, denying his master
hiding no longer in the shadows.

Testifying, full-throated authority
to the healing power
of the name of Christ
So it was then
so it is now,
healed by Christ’s name
