God does not just save the drowning from sin,
but teaches them to swim and sends them back again.
God’s plan is not just to rescue the sinner to then become a saint,
but that this sanctified believer would wander beyond the manner of his quaint.
God does not mold the mind of sorrow, to the fine tune of his joy,
just so this same retriever, can stay within the confines of his coy.
It is you who God calls and it is you he will send.
You can choose to go freely or in your spirit he will bend.
But those who are faithful, he will nourish in the light.
Even at the ends of our sorrow and the tip of the night.
