Dog Star Sirius



Faith is dog star Sirius, the brightest in the sky.
Faith is quite mysterious
and never questions why.
Faith is altered chemistry, the judgment set aside.
Faith is ancient history
and cannot be denied.
Faith is crucial affiance, the deferment of doubt.
Faith is vital reliance
and results bear it out.
Faith is basic surrender, the suspension of rule.
Faith is eager contender
and reformation school.
Faith is a hopeful vision, the good in time prevail.
Faith is a clear decision
and nothing can assail.
Faith is dog star Sirius, the greatest recompense.
Faith is quite imperious
and defies common sense.
