Holy Week: Wednesday

Faith

~ Dom Julian Stead,
from There Shines Forth Christ


Dare to go with you, be seen with you,
Listen in silence while you speak and touch and heal,
Or while you're spat on, questioned, nailed and left to die
Do people call you prophet now?
No, "myth". Make me believe that you are real:
Messiah, priest and king,
Creator, born to suffer and to die
Alone, despised, to rise
Living by the standard rule of God,
In every man and place,
poor and young, rich and old,
Judged not nor condemned but loved
With worship, in each who's rich in faith
With faith to give, and faith to strengthen him,
From him whose gift it is.
