Willing and Obedient by Raymond A. Foss

Not burnt offerings
of the fatted calf
poured out on the altar
God wanting more from us
offering our lives instead

That we would be
willing and obedient
servants of the living God
messengers of his love

Washed clean by Christ’s blood
the sins we could not repay
wiped from the record of our lives
to go another way

Ours to seek justice
to help those in need
to life up those who are oppressed
ambassadors of God
in every word and deed

Not in burnt offerings
but in the changing of our hearts
submitting to God’s holy plan
joyfully doing our part
