Heed the Words by Raymond A. Foss

The congregation, in our amens,
the waving hands, the nodding heads
the hearts smiling, in his words,
a prayer for our country, for our time
that we would heed the words
the ancient words of Deuteronomy
of our land, our people
in the same peril, the same malaise
upon our land, the same hubris
arrogance, denying the central role
That all of our abundance
flowing, as an unmerited gift,
agape love from God alone
a prayer too, that we would find our voice
each of us, the mingled flocks
all under the one good shepherd
that we would find new resolve,
new ways to reach out, to speak out
to shout into this wilderness land
so much more to do
to bring the message, in some ways,
the same message of Deuteronomy
that our trust, our believe, our faith
in God alone; but more
for we are the resurrection, Easter people
knowing more than they did
way back when the words were written
of the loving sacrifice of our savior
born so long ago, laid in that manger bed
his gift, his offering, one time and for all people
All of these words, a singular message
rely upon God; in him is our daily strength
and in him is life eternal
