Who am I, O LORD,
that you should bless me?
     An unsteady harlot,
     drowning in my own sin and failings
     (though I try always to walk upon the sea).

As I fall, in the seconds
that briefly linger,
your firm grasp saves me
from the dark, eternal pit
where there is weeping
and gnashing of teeth.

For although my grip
will forever slip,
your hand, O LORD,
it never fails.

For I am yours and you are mine,
and on me, forever, shall your mercy be!
Written earlier in the year, in awe of God's wonderful mercy and grace.

Chi-Rho is a symbol, an X and a P overlapping. It is the roman letters for C and H, the first initials of Christ.
