Ordained Participation

He hears:

a simple euphonic call
from the sparrows tiny syrinx
filling the air with song

the flutists' embouchure
as each breath resonates
warm enchanting expression

the soft cadence
of a nightime lullably
silencing the newborn's cry

He sees:

the lonely soul
dismissing years of yesterdays
reaching for harmony
in hope of tomorrow

the blood of the martyrs
as seeds for His church
each bearing his own cross

the innocent child
confused alone and weeping
on bended knee with head bowed

He touches:

the most desolate
rejuvenates with His presence

bittered and angry
transforms with understanding and forgiveness

wounded and suffering
with healing and answered prayer

He said:

"And behold I am coming quickly
My reward is with me
to give to every one according
to his work.

I am the Alpha and the Omega
the Beginning and the End
The First and the Last"
(Rev. 22:12,13)
