Harold Macdonald's Muse























Risk 2



Harold Macdonald

On the other hand there is no proof 

that God did not bang off creation;

science hits a wall of explanation

the final answer , happily aloof


Faith in God comes only if you take the chance

that improbably Godís Love can get it done;

sliding through the lattices of risk , a billion to one,

necessary Being doing the contingent dance.


We have seen already how if God is killed

An avalanche of Love will carry death away;

how, though we die, through God weíre here to stay

Godís own death is what the love of God has willed


The more God dies, the greater is Loveís sway

God is contingent in a necessary way.
