Becoming Our Sacrifice – v2

By the choices we are making
standing by, complacent
cruel choices holding on
to the treasures of this world

They are carrying our burden
becoming our sacrifice
our hands upon them
not listening to their cries

Innocents, the needy
those who count on us
being given on the altar
of the things of this life

Becoming Our Sacrifice – v2
March 15, 2011
Becoming Our Sacrifice
Leviticus 4
calling on the NH Legislature
and the Governor
to spare those without a voice
those who need us
from the severe budget cuts
that are currently planned
in HB1 and HB2, etc.
in part based on the testimony
of The Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson,
Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire
