+ 27.225 MHz 288: Eleventh Hour

Though I return at the eleventh hour,

though I return---repentant prodigal

before I was shipwrecked on shattered rocks---

I am not fearful, as my lagging soul

is safe in Christ's awesome Mercy and Power

(though kinfolk turns their noses up with dour,

uncomprehending looks upon their faces).

Christ has recalled me to His Loving Grace's

vast, infinite, and healing restoration,

to bring my soul to glorious exultation

within that ancient Faith, the Orthdox.

I thank Him in my prayers and poetry;

I will thank Him throughout eternity;

ever in the starward, Heavenly places.
