Before All Others, Love by Raymond A. Foss

God, before all others
love, the essence of God
by his hands, his words
making all there is
all that ever way
and all that is yet to be

Giving us life
by his loving breath
from the dust of the earth
he molded us, shaped us
made us his own

Love, before all others
before we walked the earth
and in sending his son
hope for our rebirth

Changing our focus
deep from within
guiding us home
through the gate of the lamb

His love, in all that he is
a future, communion
for all he
gathers in
