A Poem by Cindy Bousquet Harris: "The Name"

September 28, 2018





                                                  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



                                                  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”.
