The Race

I am in the final race
I need to quicken my pace
I can’t afford to lose
the right way I must choose
it cannot be guesswork at all
because that could make me fall
or it could lead me to a wall
or it could just plain stall
what I need to push through
In order for me to do
what needs to be done
I need a direct line to the Son
I need to know
which way to go
I can go fast
if I’m over my past
So Lord, please come
if there are some
things in the way
please remove them today
and please quicken my pace
for I want to win in this race
