A Prophet - Poem by Richard Merrell

A prophet
is the one
Through whom the Lord doth speak
To encourage the house of faith
And comfort all the weak.

A prophet
is the one
Who waits upon God in Church
A spokesman in the Lord's hands
To exhort all those that search.

A prophet
is the one
Who feels the weight of grief
From the Lord's own heart of hearts
When sheep are stolen by the thief.

A prophet
is the one
Who often stands alone
Without honour in the Church
The same as Christ has known.

A prophet
is the one
God allows to see
The needs of other people
A prophet, God made me.
