    The Prophet

    These eyes … have looked into the eyes of God.

    This mouth … has spoken real truth.

    This heart … has felt the pain of loss.

    This skin … has felt the burn of tar.

    These hands … have wiped tears from a child’s face.

    This soul … has borne the pains of martyrdom.

    This man … has testified for all the world.

    For a timid child to the highest of kings,

    He testified.
