Voices 2-23-08



Do we read our Bibles, fold our hands,
but then forget God's great commands?

I look around our little church,
do a headcount, do a search

of each and every person there -
then ask myself, "Do we not care?"

Okay I know, I'm not to judge -
but wonder if God holds a grudge.

If God is love please tell me this -
why killing infants we dismiss?

No, the unborn cannot speak
and each is weak and so unique.

I wonder if those cries of pain
will always call to me in vain?

While fervently I pray for life -
another's lost under a knife.

Is it my fault? What have I done?
Does my vote count? I have but one.

For years and years and years and years
their cries have fallen on deaf ears....

Would I, for someone, take this cross
when that is someone else's loss?

So softens, as we wayward drift,
the echo's from His gracious gift.

Oh, some might say it's so absurd -
but was it His small voice I heard?

Our rights, oh, we'll grease and grease
while legal infants' voices cease.

Created in His image too,
their one lone right.  Is that not due?

While squeaky wheels take the oil,
the unborn are financial spoil.

Thrown out in waste cans with the trash,
replaced with dirty filthy cash.

Can I not care year after year -
nor shed again just one more tear?

Will tears no longer find my cheeks?
Do I ignore when His voice speaks?

I'm saddened I have so succumbed
to selfish ones who beat their drums.

I get accustomed, sing my praise -
while others vote their selfish ways.

We go to work. We go to schools.
We follow all their subtle rules,

Time consumes us - sun to suns.
Will God still lift us lazy ones?

When we accept another's choice,
do we not hear God's still small voice?

Do we sing hymns in mindless ease -
or really love the least of these?

Do we read Bibles, fold our hands,
but then ignore God's great commands?
