Dark Soul Night Crossing

Three days have passed

Since the log fall gave us hope of land

Three watchful days

Slippery minds walk before us on to virgin soil


Now dawn breaks

The whistle call confirms no sighting yet

A fog descends

Fills our senses with foreboding and despair


Did we chart our course correct?

Wretched waters stretch unbounded to eternity

Dark soul night crossing

Great abyss yawns open her cave-like door


The vision like a pebble sinks

And doubt and self-rebuke ascend

Only a guiding angel

Will steer us from these circling sharks


Sweet fates humble us

For hoisting up our glory seeking

The will of God

Is all that can prevail
