God has pursued me

with his fierce love

across the tall mountains

through the dark, low valleys:

though i walked in unrighteousness

God did not give up his quest

for me.

his word i despised,

his people scorned.

relentlessly, he strode

across bitter currents

of my hate, and when i fell,

he picked me up, saved from hell

to be.

at last, his love fear

overcame, too great

to resist, he caught me

with his strong tenderness.

now, we walk in righteousness,

glad that he finished his quest

for me.
