Pressing On

                               Pressing on

                           I must get home

                              She’s waiting

                          In agony debating

                              Call for help

                            Or rely on self

                           I feel her grief

                             But no relief

                            I trudge along

                        My strength all gone

                             Marcy kneels

                          Her faith I feel

                             Marcy prays

                     She knows I’ve strayed

                    Her tears are streaming

                         My life is waning

                    Marcy sobbing in despair

                My life she prays to be spared

                    Still crawling barely alive

               A sense of hope begins to thrive

                Marcy tears begin to cease

              As she senses a great release

                      I see a light up ahead

                       I must keep moving

                       Marcy begins to sing

                         Praises to our King

                             Up once again

                        I really need a friend

                        Marcy begins to dance

                        New hope in her prance

                  Hello John said the strange voice

                     Marcy has begun to rejoice

                  Came to give you a helping hand

                

 

                  You sure you’re alright to stand

                A few more steps we’ll be in the van

        No one told Marcy her prayers had been heard

                  She just knew the one she served

              Tap Tap Tap came the knock on the door

                  It had to be John, Marcy was sure

                               And then she saw

                      With amazement in her eyes

                     A stranger helping John inside

                          Her true love was home

                              Her Fears all gone
