HAGAR

I DO NOT KNOW IF HAGAR

WAS SINNER

OR SAINT

CERTAINLY

ABRAM

AND SARAI

WEREN’T

MOST LIKELY

LIKE MOST OF US

THEY WERE

BOTH

I DO KNOW SHE WAS AN ABUSED WOMAN

WITHOUT HER CONSENT

SHE WAS A WOMB FOR ABRAM’S SEED

SHE WAS A SLAVE

A WALKING TOOL

HER OPINION DIDN’T COUNT

LIFTED OUT OF ANONYMITY

SHE STRUTTED

IN HER NEW IMPORTANCE

DISPLEASING HER MISTRESS

SARAI TREATED HER SO HARSHLY

SHE RAN AWAY

THE LORD FOUND HER NEAR WATER

THE LORD ALWAYS FINDS US IN WATER

I HAVE HEARD YOUR CRY

THE CHILD’S WHIMPER

YOU WILL NAME HIM ISHMAEL

MEANING

THE LORD WILL HEAR

HAGAR SAID

I WILL CALL YOU

EL-ROI

FOR I HAVE SEEN GOD

YET I LIVE

AT GOD’S REQUEST

SHE RETURNED TO SERVITUDE

TO RAISE HER SON

FOURTEEN YEARS LATER

SARAH’S ISAAC WAS BORN

HER JOY

HER LAUGHTER

BUT TROUBLE STARTED AGAIN

THERE WAS JEALOUSY

BETWEEN THE TWO WOMEN

SO HAGAR GIVEN

BREAD AND WATER

WAS EXILED

WHEN THE WATER WAS GONE

SHE PLACED THE CHILD UNDER A BUSH

SO SHE WOULD NOT HEAR ITS DEATH CRIES

BUT GOD HEARD

THE CRIES OF THE CHILD

THE SOBS OF THE MOTHER

BROUGHT WATER

HAGAR THOUGHT

NO MATTER

IF THE WORLD BRINGS ME LOW

OR MY OWN BEHAVIOR DOES

GOD DOES HEAR MY CRIES

SHE PRAYED

I LOVE THE LORD

FOR HE HEARD

MY VOICE

HE HEARD

MY CRY FOR MERCY

JUST AS I AM

HE BROUGHT ME WATER
