Lord Hear Our Cry! – December 2012

Lord
Hear our Cry!

Where is Faith?
The wicked live prosperously
You are always on their lips,
yet so far from their hearts.

Hear our Cry!
Where is Hope?
Beggars and all the poor
must go into hiding.

Our Father from above
leads us on a journey
to each other,
which sets free a passion to
find God in all

The Messiah
unites us
to delight in
paradise found.
In the soil from where I came.

guides us
to a fire that
tells us where to stand.
Where freedom is found.

Compassionately,
I see a fire in others that
leads us on a journey to
paradise found.
In the soil from where I came.

Oh God
Where is Love foreign?
If we keep each other ‘til
Love is known.

 Poem by James Lopez Ericksen
