Lest Thought Yields to Despair...





Lest thought yields to despair
And hope dejected cedes defeat
And hunger leads to feeding where
Nothing its howling want can meet
 
Lest Unknown seems too hard
And what we know is not enough
To mediate twixt head and heart
Mortal’s intrinsic need for love

Lest ‘if’ offers no grace
And brokenness bleeds spirits dry
Without the Wherewithal to face
What is not known to you or I

…we ought to bow in prayer
And break the Bread of Life and eat
Lest thought yields to utter despair
And hope dejected cedes defeat
