Out of the Labyrinth, into the Light

Behind the walls, those ghostly calls
to strive outside our maze.

Too long we moved where senses proved
to lead us no way home.

With each return, reversed, concerned
our roaming wandered on.

Directionless, as we transgress
to follow pride astray.

Before each choice, an echoed voice
to guide our minds beyond.

Then we heard the hallowed Word:
we found our path unseen.

Once undeceived, when we believed,
through grace we reached the gate.

In faith, we stride, indemnified,
amazed yet lost no more.
