We Simply Keep On....

We’ve been down this road before
The silent night, the closing door
But oft hope rises with the dawn
So we keep on keeping on

The spacious rooms have become small
Interspersed with invisible walls
Yet love and forgiveness are not cold and gray
But soft color that melts the walls away

The battlefield is muddy and scarred
The flawless shield of New Year is marred
By the erring and stumbling of many a wrong
But by God’s grace we keep on keeping on

God gives strength one day at a time
He knows the length of each hill we must climb
He holds the key to a brighter dawn
As we simply keep on keeping on
