An original by David LaMont Beyler:
“When the Race Is Run”
I thought my life was all for naught,
When in despair the Lord I sought
Seal not from me the gates of Heaven,
For with concern my soul is driven,
Stretch forth and touch my eyes that I might see,
All for me that which might be.
Reach forth and touch my heart
That I might know
Of all life’s roads that which I must go.
If I should stumble in my path today
Art thou there to help me on my way?
My words alone cannot convey all that I would speak,
Yet thou, Oh God who reads the hearts of men
Know that of which I seek.
Then came a voice so soft and clear,
Rely on me, I’m ever near.
Bear up thy yoke, continue thy race,
Thy past mistakes thou can erase.
Diligently strive the voice then said
With prayerful heart and lowered head.
Strive in earnest every day,
And I shall guide thy feet along the way.
Have faith in me in doing every deed,
I’ll give thee strength and quicken thy speed.
Follow my prophet with single heart,
While on thy knees each new DAY thou start.
Enduring all, do this my son,
I shall receive thee home
When thy race is run.
