one step. one more.
this foot, now the other.
day after day – doing what is needed
knowing the path is longer than today
preparing the heart to wake for another

this monotony is exhausting
like walking without a scenery change
siting is easier
so i stand

train me in faithfulness, Rock of the ages.
teach me dependence
to suck life from the water spewing from You
to abide
to remain
to not forget or forsake
Your presence.
