Hastening to Bethlehem by Raymond A. Foss

Maybe, in this modern age,
the best way to think of
the journey to the Christ child
the season of waiting, Advent
Hastening to Bethlehem
to catch a glimpse of the king
the rush, the motion
of our days only allow
a furtive, hectic gaze

The truth is hard to contemplate
if we slow for contemplation
our lives to busy for the king
a sale beckons
We miss the greatest gift of all
our savior come to earth
in the frenetic spin of life
trusting in ourselves not him
Slow to wait, to linger
to sit at the master’s feet
welcoming the Christ child
into the world once again
