Paraclete

Word within the scripture
Paraclete is seen
Left with thought to ponder
What does this word mean?

Translations of the many
Comforter, consoler
Advocate, defender,
Helper or counselor

One that I like best
Easy to apply
Connection of compassion
“One who answers the cry”

One that defends
Protects a person, weak
Of whom we’re all in need
The Paraclete, let’s seek

The Goose

Hear now geese of honking
Calling to the way
Symbol of the Spirit
Turn now here to pray

Hear now draw attention
Practice vigilance
Keeping of the watch
No ambivalence

Hear now God directing
Quick of taking flight
One above the surface
Drawing to the light

Hear now Spirit moving
One of evidence
Serve as a reminder
Trust God’s providence
