Knowing by Raymond A. Foss

Stopping to ponder for a moment
the ultimate gift of Christ
descending from heaven
knowing his fate
his sacrifice
his death by those he would save
his death at the hands of man

September 3, 2010
as I read the title of the following poem
before posting it to Christianpoetry this morning,
I thought of the fact that Christ did all that he did
with his eyes seeing, knowing his fate,
before he came to earth
With his eyes seeing

awakening his slumber
the pain of his suffering
seeing the world, with eyes open to God
his sacrifice, his love shining
in the vision before him
able to see the world
as if for the first time
seeing sin from the
perspective of a father
grasping his mercy,
his love for us all
Choosing, as Christ did
the way of the cross
wanting no child
to bear such a terrible cost
