There is the truth and our opinion of it,
Fact and what we think is fact,
Reality and what we believe is real.
There is the one and the other.
We seek the one and defend the other,
praise the one and confess the other,
point to the one and refine the other.
We grapple with the stars.
A spark from you, dear Lord, is enough.
