Look into the weary, pain-filled face of one
Who never gives place to the enemy,
And discover courage.
Look into the midst of a battle
Where God's grace manifests strength and hope
And sustains courage.
We admire and desire the courage
Witnessed in the daily walk of
One brave soul,
Yet despise the need for courage
When we ourselves are enveloped
In the place where courage is birthed in us.
Thus we look into a weary, pain-filled heart and
Treasure the smallest of victories
And we are encouraged.
