The Sentient Lamb by Raymond A. Foss
Pure, unblemished
the sentient lamb
coming forward
as part of God’s plan

Kneeling before us
the priest the sacrifice
taking our hands
putting them on his head

Taking our sin
the stain of judgment
climbing the cross
that we may live

Choosing to die
to be our sacrifice
to pay our cost
making us righteous once more

We rise with him
a forgiven people
to share his message
of God’s divine healing

The sentient lamb
now seated in heaven
waiting for heaven
to reign on the earth

Cuts approved by the NH House Finance Committee and
Constitutional Amendment proposed by Rep. Neal Kirk
to remove safety net of town welfare
John 3:16 versus Leviticus 4
calling on the NH Legislature
and the Governor
to spare those without a voice
those who need us
from the severe budget cuts
that are currently planned
in HB1 and HB2, etc.
in part based on the testimony
of The Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson,
Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire
