theological treatise #5


Palsy and leprosy
blood lust and thief
Disbelief & betrayal
Greed, sloth & the nail

These are the states of our State
gone without Thee
how can we not live
but to please Thee, O Christ?

O Lord take my faith
as the foiling rock
guarding Thy path
as a stumbling block

The approach to Thy palace
cuts through all this sinning
mild fruit for repentance
needs toil, sweat & spinning

and we are left heaving
as the Life’s grave beginning
