WEARY WARRIOR, GO THE DISTANCE

Are you a soldier weary of the battle,
Holding the ground you already won?
Clothed in your armor, you stand so tall,
Yet you’re drooping ‘cos you’re tired of it all!

Who will help me, you cry within your heart,
What can I do, you question within your loft!
Fear not, good warrior, help is at hand,
God has placed resources close by your stand!

Look first to Him Who called you to go,
He’s promised to be there in all that you do!
His eyes are open, His ears do hear,
He doesn’t abandon you whenever you tear!

His grace is sufficient for the task that He gave,
His strength is made perfect when yours doth fail!
The clarity of His mission will lighten your way,
The focus of His purpose will enliven your sway!

Don’t give up yet, tho’ night seems long and drawn,
Just persevere and hold on until the day doth dawn!
Time is but short and the stakes are but high!
Its but a momentary dull and the end is but nigh!

Reach out for help from those who are with you,
Stretch out to succour those who surround you!
Seek not to walk alone for you have a community,
God’s always meant for you to be part of His family!

Stand strong soldier, let your heart be true,
Don’t let the world tease you into its lure!
His yoke is easy and His burden is light,
Stand firm soldier, your reward is in sight!
