Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
What we risk

Turning our back
on the call of Jesus
what we risk
when we do not follow

So much more
than what we fear
when we fail to act
in the name of Jesus

We are here now
in this time and place
to sow seeds of love
to share his face

to be the hands and feet
the voice of Jesus
if we fail to speak
who will share the message
the good news of salvation
our purpose on the earth
