''When Existential Angst Tests Faith,...'' (1st draft)

When existential angst tests faith, we hope,
that in the new-ripened morn, there's a God
from high above Who inspires us to cope,
tho' life's bolts strike us like a lightning rod.
When existential angst tests faith, we pray
not for escape from life's woes, but for grace
and strength to show and manifest the Way,
the Truth, and the Light in reflective space.
When existential angst tests faith, we know
there's a God Who transcends all doubts: and saves;
for it's ourselves we seek to overthrow,
since our nature spurns what Creation craves.
Doubt and angst, when by the heart examin'd,
droop and die by these lines here imagin'd.
