Touching A Robe

From a distance seeing these things,
shepherds worshipping
the shepherd of souls;
disciples through generations
standing in fear
beholding the cross.
A sick woman touchs the robe of her healer
and I
stand at a distance, seeing these things
touch the robe of those
who have gone before
touch theirs
touching yet others—
a multitude
gazing at this awful event
together—helpless
to stop the cross
together—thankful
we could not.
Standing at a distance, beholding these things
I join the shepherds
touch a robe
am healed and give thanks
for an empty tomb
and deserted grave clothes.
Together—at a distance—hand to brow
join the throng—yet to behold this thing
the glory of the one true king.


(8.1.94)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
