If Christ TomorrowPoems of Raoul Follereau

Raoul Follereau 1982

Raoul Follereau stamp (Luxembourg, 1982)

If tomorrow Christ, will knock at your door,

will you recognise Him?

He will like He was once upon a time,

a poor man, certainly a lonely man.

If tomorrow Christ, will knock at your door,

will you recognise Him?

He will have a worn look,

tired,

crushed as He is

as He must carry

all the sadness of the earth ...

If tomorrow Christ, will knock at your door,

will you recognise Him?

So he will go away,

even more worn, even more crushed,

with peace in His bare hands.
