Sweet Irony

Alas, O Lord my God, for most of
my life I have striven to know
You, striven to love You, striven to
find You, and striven to follow
those teachings You left behind as
You taught Your Apostles how
to lead and rule Your flock! Alas,
as oft' as not I have sinned,
turned my back and a deaf ear to
my God, then I tried to outrun
the One I carried within!
'Twas a fool's gambit!
Alas, O Lord my God, for all of
my life You have striven to
let me know You, striven to Love
me and teach me to love,
striven to let me find You, and
striven to teach me Your
teachings through Whispers of
the Spirit! Alas, as oft' as
I sinned, turned my back and a
deaf ear to You, tried hard
to outrun and hide from
You, You are there!
You are tireless, O Lord my God,
for in spite of me, You knew
me, Loved me, sought me, then
spoke in Whispers to me! I
turned back, opened my ears, and
found my One True Love!
So be it!
