When you stepped out with joy
Rejoiced because of great assurance
Did you consider the dangers on the way
The snares and sufferings?
Now in the midst of troubles, you tremble
Fear not you shall the Promised Land arrive
When you made bold confessions of faith
Courageously professed a new season
Did you know the battles on your pathway
The battering and beating of pilgrims?
Hemmed in between the devil and deep sea
The Master shall the storm calm.
When you signed the faith covenant
Decided and declared to live by the word
Did you anticipate the wars ahead
The buffetings and battles of faith?
The Master shall calm the storm
When you walked out on the devil
Refused to compromise and capitulate
Did you consider that it was round one
That daily battles exist and persist?
Failing seven times on the narrow path
The Master shall surely calm the storm.
