The Race

A new word
must be heard
the one that’s been told
is now way too old
Something new and fresh
that doesn’t come from the flesh
must be spoken
for it’s our token.
We need more than a glance
to prepare to advance.
We should not arise
to be taken by surprise.
We all need to prepare
so we won’t give way to despair.
Trouble is coming to the land
the guards need to manned
their post
for the Lord of Host.
They need to give ear
to what they hear
then hurry back
without any slack
to the One in charge
who is like the Sarge.
He will direct their course
so there will be no remorse.
If we follow through
in all we are to do
we will win with God’s grace
for we will have finished the race.
