Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
In an Earthen Vessel by Raymond A. Foss

The divine, down from heaven
walking our paths
in an earthen vessel
No longer spirit
of flesh and blood
God descended to be with us
our sin, our shame to heal

October 18, 2009
John 1:1-5
on posting the poem below to Faithwriters
Omnipotent, Vulnerable

The omnipotent, vulnerable
divine, incarnate
creator, clay
eternal, infant
the father, a son
Prince of Peace, the humble lamb
the king, a servant
Come to earth, heaven bound
the babe in the manger
He will return, oh so differently

December 12 and 13, 2008
John 1:1-5
