Make Some Noise

 

He stood among us 

Not a stranger

Not separate

Not Just divine

 

Which He was

 

But fully human.

Seemed like a Sayer of sooths

Interpreter of sacred scripture

Purveyor of knowledge

 

Which He was

 

But He was also us

 

He was with us

He was in us

He was us 

He is the I am.

 

Not just authority

Not just more instructions

Like the Old Testament

 

But more.

 

This time human

Creating us

Feeling us

Being us 

In community

In love

 

Together redefined

 

So let us not watch

But watch through his eyes

 

Let us not hear the cries

But feel them in our hearts

 

Let us not standby

But act now

 

And make the noise of a Christian in the World.
