Matter of Life and Death

Matter of Life and Death

It’s a matter of life and death

We are bereft of life and know death

If we do not move from our present position

Death reigns in us – if life we forsake

When all calamity encompasses us round about

We are left struggling in despair and doubt

Faith will arise only when the gift is given

Not faith in our surmise

But faith when we are forgiven

The gift is in the fog of our own reason

Seeking to find us amidst our armed resistance

We totter on the brink of further despair

We do not know where we err

We go about in stedfast iron-curtain mode

Can’t find the door through reasons-wall

But the gift is offered: faith in the One to come

Faith in the Messiah – faith in the Only Begotten Son
