A Foot for Sorrow

On the endless road - Redemption Way
I thought I heard my Savior say:
For love alone, one step more
You can do it. I love you. One step more.
A foot for sorrow, a measure of pain
I lifted my feet, again and again
And the Lamb's voice echoed as before:
You can do it. I love you. One step more.
Though you may stumble, when you fall down
I'll lift you up; My graces abound
In my heart arose, Love so sweet
Grace set me once more upon my feet
His beloved voice shook me right to the core:
You can do it! I love you! Just one step more.

  1. This is so beautiful! It reminds me of a homily I once heard about a priest who had to give a speech to his 8th grade graduating class. He was so nervous that when he got up in front of everybody, he just froze. He looked out and saw Sr. Maryann. She was mouthing "you can do it" over and over again. From her faith in him, he summoned up the courage to give his speech, and today, he is a great homilist! Thanks for this lovely prayer.
