Alpha and Omega;
Know what I am?
No permutational stringing of characters
may fully describe divine being -
A to Z:
Know your way around?
No list of streets or indexed maps
define the pilgrim path -
Aleph, Beth, Gimel:
Know the mathematical infinities?
No measure even they
of redeeming grace -
Alpha and Omega…
A to Z…
Alphabets proliferate -
Yet impotent all to measure faith
As at Babel, all unable to comprehend -
Alf, and Beth, and so many more
Know me quite well,
Tread with familiarity the pilgrim path,
and are, by unspeakable grace, redeemed.
