II. The God of my today: darkened, not distant
Not a tame Lion. . .
“Of course, not safe, but good. . .”
“Both good and terrible at the same time. . .”
Thou art good,
And doest good;
Teach me Thy commandments.
And then. . . what?
“I will never leave you or forsake you.”
“Thou art the same Lord,
whose property is always to have mercy.”
The Lion in the fog
Between the path and the abyss.
You hem me in, behind and before;
Your love has laid hold of me
And will not let me go.
“I AM; do not be afraid.”
I fear no evil,
For YOU ARE.
