If you want the golden medal
(If, indeed, the prize is yours),
You must exercise the muscles;
Keep your mind fixed on the goals.
So it is for all the “faithful” ~
For the ‘given measure’ grows
'Til our minds are filled with faithfulness
That the Heart of Heaven knows.
Do your duty ~ exercise!
Read, again, the words in red.
Sing the songs and tell the stories;
Testify ~ be Spirit led!
Lift your holy hands ~ surrender
To the God Who loves and cares,
To the Painter of the sunset,
To the One Who hears your prayers.
