Hard Yards


I've been doing hard yards
said the Pilgrim
My path seems lined with briars;
Obstacles arise
out of nowhere -
When will I see my way clear?
I've been doing hard yards
said the Pilgrim
How do I move on from here?
Exhausted, discouraged
& stricken
All is murky & dim & decayed.
My footsteps are leaden,
my heart sees no light..
Show me a sign
that hope lies ahead...
I feel so small
for the tasks now before me..
Hard yards, without rest, took their toll
Give me the strength
to move on in faith -
revive my weak spirit
with Yours so Divine.
