WE HAVE BUT ONE SHORT HISTORY
TO LIVE OUT IN OUR DAYS
THE TASK OF PRIESTLY MINISTRY,
AS THE SHEPARD'S SHEEP MUST GRAZE,
TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO OR SO
THE SHEPARD SACRIFICED,
THE SHEEP THEN SCATTERED IN DISMAY,
AND ASKED WHAT THEY SHOULD DO,
I RECALL AN ANSWER THAT A PRECIOUS PRIEST WOULD SAY
'' DON'T LEAVE JESUS ALL ALONE IN THE TABERNACLE TODAY''
THEN GRILLING US TO FIND OUT JUST HOW MUCH WE HEAR,
THE DEAREST PRIEST IN HIS ''AMEN?'' THEN SADLY DISAPPEARED.
WHERE DID HE GO, WHY DID HE LEAVE
HE LEFT US HERE ALONE, TO GRIEVE,
WHAT MESSAGE CAN WE GET FROM THIS
LIVE OUT GOD'S WORD, PRAY, BELIEVE.
IN ATONEMENT FOR ALL OUR SIN,
WE CANNOT JUDGE THE MAN WITHIN,
BUT TRUST COMES WITH A PRICE EACH DAY,
OUR EYES ON CHRIST NOW WE MUST PRAY.
I'M SADDENED BY THE OUTCOME STILL
THERE IS NO CURE OR SPECIAL PILL
TO TAKE THE BITTER FROM THE SWEET
WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE MEET
GOD'S HAND ON US WE READ AND GROW,
KEEPING OUR EYES ON HIM.(JESUS)
