Long obedience in the same direction.
In it for the long haul,
A marathon rather than a sprint.
Though some days we may feel
As if we’ve fallen off the track,
Or meandered off course entirely,
While for others the race may often feel
More like the rush and flurry of a dash…
The race goes on.
So keep running,
Setting your eyes on the prize,
On the goal,
The author, founder, nourisher
Of our faith and hope,
And the one who is
Our strength and courage
