Is It Too Much?

My children, My people,
Even those who say
     I am not,
What have I said?
What have I done?
How have I wearied you?

I set you free.
Was it that?
I gave you a home.
Was it that?
I said you are Mine.
Was it that?

Is it the bowing down?
Is it the sacrifice?
Is it My holiness?

Is it not enough that instead of you
I gave of My own first fruit
My beloved begotten Son
     for the sake of all your sin?

It is too much?
In exchange I require
You do justice!
Love mercy!
And walk humbly,
     with me, your God!
