Raymond A. Foss Poems

Within these Walls by Raymond A. Foss

Our lives alone, apart
separately live out
within these walls of stone
no others can get in

The psalm, the hope once more
should turn us to the Lord
he is the rock, our fortress
in all the storms of life

Our hope, protector,
redeemer, from our wayward paths
our sin, our turning from him
only he can change

Tearing down the barriers
letting our savior in
turning back to the Lord
to let our neighbors in

Together a people of faith
a true community
a living body of Christ
each one a part to play

All of us called to Christ
to walk with our brother, our king
to lead a life filled with grace
for this we sing and pray

Within the walls,
the narrow gate
walking the path, the plan
for our lives

Only within the arms of God
may we stand against the blast
to live as our brother lives
to offer a real helping hand
