Raymond A. Foss Poems

We are now the angels by Raymond A. Foss

In the story of the Christ-child
the stars, the angels
heralded the coming
of the son of God
the babe in the manger
the son of the virgin
the Messiah come
as had been promised
long ago

We are now the angels
we who have heard his story
who believe in Christ
and his coming to the earth
each of us saved,
whether we believe or we doubt him
each of us worthy
when we bow at his feet

Nothing we can say or do
to earn a heavenly reward
just acceptance of his gift
our way, our lives restored
Our task, like the angels
to hail his coming day
when the Lord returns
and opens that glorious age
