Walking the extra mile (dedicated to Lena)

Walking that mile necessitates a strong allegiance
A singular love for the Lord Jesus
Learning to travel the road of suffering
Knowing it is for a Divine cause
Incalculable lost souls are watching us
Not wanting to bring Him any shame
Going down His dark and lonely alleyways

The goal is His pleasure
Hiding under His mighty wings
Encouraging ourselves in His presence

Extra dedication is needed to follow His direction
X-ray eyesight is required to see the needs
The cries of the hearts demand His mercy
Reaching out with His compassion to the broken
Always listening for every hint of a whisper

Mile after mile, never ending miles
Inciting others along the worthy path
Lovingly leading the perplexed and confused
Eternity in view, Oh! What victory!
