To trust requires a qualitative leap (Kierkegaard Sonnet #3)

To trust requires a qualitative leap
 And sin, I’m told, involves more of the same:
The gap, whichever way you turn, is deep
And, leaping, you can’t go back where you came.
So, then, when our ontology is faint
And all our guesses lead us back to here –
This point of anxious thinking, mind’s constraint –
Our only hope the ground we know and fear,
(A firmness interpenetrating sight),
The trust that, eo ipso, God still is
And we may be in Him, just like the light
Of Sun consumes all that we see and gives
All things their life and energy. Though we
Must leap within the dark, we leap to see.
