Doubt is A Thief
By June Jenuine
Doubt is a thief who steals our sight
And leaves us groping for the light.
A child will tell our foolish hearts
That we have lost what God imparts,
Yet souls each hour are sacrificed
For every enemy of Christ.
Like fools we let our faith decay,
With miracles like night and day,
And questioning the power of God
We dumbly reap the pregnant sod;
We ask for answers without hope,
For facts beyond our reason's scope,
And for this cause, doubt or deny,
Although the planets dot the sky
While space rolls on forevermore
And Earth is laden with her store;
Although the muse cannot explain
The wonders that disgrace his brain;
Although a little child will run
To grab a weed, to greet the sun,
A rabbit race in wild delight
When dawn relieves the weary night,
A hummingbird in summer dart
With seasonal glory in its heart . . .
Yet, blind and stupid, humans plod
Away from Truth, away from God,
Seeking pleasure where sorrow lies,
While Doubt, the thief, plucks out our eyes.
