1st Sunday after Christmas Luke 2:41-52

Did you not know?

After all the praise on high

after all the promise heard

of this one

------ the Messiah?

Did you not know

the presence of God in this your son?

Do we not know

who have heard the end of the story

who have seen the salvation of God?

Do we not know

and do we relegate this the Christ

to the role of a child in our lives

to be brought forth only

when it is to our liking?

How could Mary not know after all she had heard?

How could we

and not head the call?

Come let us walk in the way of the Lord

and hear anew

all the promise given

and the Praise on High

in the new year of our lives
