Standing There, Calling Him

The Lord, standing there,
right beside him in the night
calling him, waiting for his response
Speak, for your servant is listening.
The living creator, the God of his ancestors
The Lord, who spoke to Eli, now calling to Samuel
to a changing forever of his days
a servant, prophet for the people
The man who would be the Lord’s hands
anointing two kings
Waking from sleep,
in the presence of the Lord
listening for his command
