Faith in mercy, miracle of the cross
stone of the tomb, liberating us from loss
redemption lifts the burden of rebellion
excess of error atoned, justice measured
in humility, depth of remorse in repentance
salvation pending endurance, long years
of exile, far from home, cast out, alone
in the desert, with lizards as friends
the tent of Orion our only defense
from random blizzards of circumstance.
