Raymond A. Foss Poems

So I send you by Raymond A. Foss

What must those disciples have thought,
hearing these words of the risen Christ
coming to them, into the room
even though the doors were locked;
Entering into their presence
breathing the spirit upon them
offering them peace
and sending them into the world

As the father sent me, so I send you
the words of the risen Messiah
just as had been prophesized
standing in their midst
Sending them out
to offer the love of the father
sharing his message of hope
to all who would lend an ear
Bringing the Christ
into each town, each place
the servant king dwelling within us
the spirit of the risen Lord
a smile upon our face

Going out into the world
from that start that day
to the ends of the earth
right up to this present time
Waiting for his return
his promise yet to come
In the waiting time,
sharing Christ in our time
in our own gifted way
Being the hands and feet of Christ
a voice in the wilderness
calling all of us sinners home
