Hospital lobby fascinates
The comings and goings
Humanity here in Hamilton
Loved ones pushing lame ones
Staff repeating protocol
Endlessly
But with grace
Beautiful art and Gospel hints
Many too distracted
To look up
To whisper words
Of invocation
Of needful petition
To the Almighty
The loving-kind One
The supreme Sufferer
Who overcame
On and through a Cross
And knows the plight
Of the afflicted
The neglected
The hurting
The misunderstood
The uncertain
The dependent
The clinging.
And clinging to what?
To Whom?
With the authority
And the acumen
And the heart to heal it all.
An image comes to mind
To us in this throng:
Peter and John stand
With a once-crippled one
Before incredulous lords
Claiming the Name of Jesus
And faith in that Name
As the rock bottom reason
For astounding good prospects
For a back erect
For lips filled with praise
For legs given to dance.
This one was accompanied. (Acts 4: 7-14)
