To teach us love by Raymond A. Foss
Christ came
descended from his throne
donning the flesh of clay
to teach us love
noun, verb, and more
a life in love
to love, to be love
what God means by love
giving himself for us
going to the cross
that we would live
that we would grow
to know more fully
within our very souls
what this gift truly means
that we would share this love
with everyone we meet
to the ends of the earth
our light shining
bright in the darkness
casting out the shadows
setting the captives free

Choosing to Become Human

Christ, choosing to become human
into the world, a humble piece of clay
walking with our brothers, our sisters
the saints long before us
sharing his message, the love of God
Living a life, as we do day to day;
but offering us a better way
Following the master
even to the cross
drinking the cup of his destiny
so that me may find our way
to the other side, across the chasm
our free will keeping us
from the love of God
Turning himself
a king a servant
so we would see the light
our path through the darkness
settling into
our heavenly home
