Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
The Voice of Inclusion

With the prostitutes, the tax collectors
with the unclean, the lepers
Christ is the voice of inclusion
showing us his example
loving all whom he met
offering even Judas
his body, his blood
his sacrifice on the cross
All of us sinners
while we yet lived in sin
going to Calvary
showing us how to live
