Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
Filled with Compassion

Christ loved us anyway
judging us not
filled with compassion
sharing his life with us

Eating with the outcasts
the Samaritans and the others
the women, the lepers
with all who were left out

We are to follow his example
love even for our enemies
offering love and kindness
in our walk on this earth

Loving our neighbors
giving of our lives
offering them our witness
so no more may die
