Living in the Promised Land by Raymond A. Foss

A radical concept,
already living in the promised land
a time of living
after the rising of the son
after awareness of his gift,
his sacrifice for us
Our lives, witnesses,
a gift themselves
the creator indwelling within our hearts
giving us rest, if we would but believe
calming the storms of our lives
if we would but follow his commands
We, like Christ, able to rest
seeking him in green pastures
beside still waters
on placid seas
living in the promised land
heaven here on earth
our brother beside us
our lives turned over to God
