With Our Hands Empty by Raymond A. Foss

With our hands empty
like the Pharisees, the others
the bridegroom coming
with us with empty lamps

Are we truly ready
believing in the Christ-child
the one who had been foretold
the Messiah’s holy birth

Needing this season
the guiding of his star
needing the days of waiting
to prepare our doubting hearts

Will we be ready
when he comes down to the earth
in victory this time
no humble manger birth
