His Courage and Fidelity by Raymond A. Foss

In the midst of our sadness
at our bewilderment of the necessity
the story of his suffering
his death upon the cross
At the heart, the center
unlike the disciples, deserting him,
betraying, denying knowing Jesus
Christ’s own example
his courage and fidelity
strengthened through prayer and his trust
in the sovereignty of God

Christ’s path to the cross
the hill of Calvary
began before his birth, in heaven
a servant to God’s plan
Descending to the flesh
to walk the earth as man
come for this moment
to redeem us as only he can
returning us to the master
part of the family
beloved children of God
