A Poem by Cindy Bousquet Harris: "The Name"

The Name

Name so holy

none could speak, nor hope

to venture near;

astounding, that the awesome One

would choose

to meet us

here. To grace

our undeserving path

with His steps

close to ours,

lift us up

in tenderness

by Hands

that made the stars.

Unworthy souls,

unworthy! We know it

to be true.

He would not

disagree

and still

He came

for me and you;

by the perfect Blood

of Christ – He is

our Passover Lamb –

we dare

to breathe the Name

of Him

who is

the great “I Am”.

(by Cindy Bousquet Harris)
