Amazing grace—how foreign to

a skeptic such as me!

But now, ‘though logic has its place,

there’s room for mystery


We struggle still to comprehend

to analyse and sort

while Story cuts right to the chase

of all our cultures taught


Deep shadows filled our hearts with fear

mistakenly believed

Now in the light, those shades appear

redeemed and re-perceived


Amazing grace is built into

each gene and chromosome:

Logos can form a structure,

but Mythos makes a home.
