Ascension Day

 

With a wave of her shepherdly crook
Bishop Jo taught us truth from Luke’s book
God’s call got a mention
On the day of Ascension
“Is it I, Lord?”- Jo gave us a look

They heard stories of Bethlehem’s stable
But now know it’s more than a fable
Children loving Lord Jesus
(To serve Him, not please us)
Were baptised and received at God’s table

To the Dark Lord’s extreme consternation
Eight youngsters enjoyed confirmation
And so taking their parts
They opened their hearts
For a spiritual life-transformation
