O Faithful Hound

(with apologies to Francis Thompson)

O faithful Hound of heaven

how you pursue and follow me.
Relentlessly you run though I
in my arrogant unbelief flee
from the presence of your grace.
Yet you run to overtake;
and from your absolute embrace
I run, praying all the while,
that you prove swifter in the chase.
