The Message Repeating by Raymond A. Foss

The message repeating
all through scripture
from the beginning of the bible
to the end of the age

All about living
humbly, as a servant
loving our neighbor
and walking with God

So much lost through our folly
our arrogance, trying to play God
that we somehow were better
than our neighbor
that being made in the image
made us like God

So far from perfect,
loving as Christ did
all of us stumbling
heavy feet made of clay

But the message repeating
all through scripture
the words of the prophet
here is summary
God wanting us
to do what is right
to love our neighbor
and to walk humbly
before almighty God
