Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
And his name is blessing

So simple an act
responding to our Creator
a child unexpected
a son for a nation
Named for a purpose
humble before God
wanting to respond, faithful
giving God our all
And his name is blessing
offered from their heart
heeding God's calling
going where they are led
serving as messengers
sharing God's love
like Hannah at the temple
giving unto God
out of their own great love
