His Precious Duty

The Pastor held their attention
this man in grey, silently applauded for
his presence as he sat in front of the piano
on the sanctuary podium, alert and
regal, his figure poised, glancing at Heaven;
fingers began to enchant a song
of thanksgiving to our Lord and Saviour;
and the message prepared has
been blessed in the blood of Jesus Christ,
the same I Am who suffered and died
on a cross at Calvary over 2,000 years ago
using His last breath to forgive our sins.
