… They were going to call him Zechariah after his father,
but his mother said in reply,
“No. He will be called John” (Gospel).

You are so
afraid
so worried

I know you are
good
in your heart

I know you want
to do
what is right

I know all
about you

I watched you
grow in your
mother’s womb—

before you were born
i spoke
your name

I know when
you
stand up—when
you
sit down

nothing is
hidden
from me

come, waste
some
time with me
