Breaking the Power of the Oppressors by Raymond A. Foss

If we truly listen to this word
the power of his life
breaking the grip of the oppressors
not by the sword
but with his sacrifice

A humble Messiah
the lamb and the shepherd
walking as a servant
upon the earth
freeing us through the cross

The same Spirit guiding us
living inside as Christ
leading us on our walk
following all of our days
the servant way of the cross

Not by force or might
seeking treasures here below
rewards in heaven above instead
at the end of our days

Sharing Christ’s message of hope
the glory of our king
the fulfillment of promises of old
all by the depth of God’s love
