We are a people of the highest good.
We are a people made pilgrims because of
God’s greatest good.
And so we wander onward achieving
because we have been approved.
We’ve been changed inward, so we move
Achieving things that make the good Father
Serving well because we have been captured
by the wonder of the Savior.
Our journeys are not paved with good
But accomplishments that stand as memorials
We are a people of action.
We set goals.
We dream dreams.
We articulate vision.
We waste not the moments at hand, for they
will never be here again.
The journey is long, and shortcuts are for
The standard that governs us cannot be
downloaded or purchased.
The standard that governs can only be
understood as a response, an offering.
And one that will be made time and
again by those bound for the heaven
By those clothed in grace,
By those motivated by love,
By those determined to live well.
Why? One may ask . . .
Yeah, because grace understood demands
more and never less.
