****[Amos 4:13]

Did I know Thy Name
when I called upon Thee
Then — down there in that
pit of darkness?

Did I know whom to speak to
did I know who to address
When I sought in tears
Thy light in that dusk?

Was I trying to whisper
Thy Name when calling for help?
When I beheld the beauty
of a world created
different every separate time
from that one I saw
an hour, a moment ago —

Was that Thy Name, I knew
was at the foundation of all that?

A wind breathed a Name upon me
a Name of Creation Done
a Name of Creation Perfected
a Name of Forgiveness

was that/is that Thy Name?
