It’s not following giant’s steps
That lead us to our goal
But carrying those with feeble knees
To God who’ll make them whole
It’s not with selfish striving
That we come to win the race
But reaching out to wipe the tears
Of those who need God’s grace
It’s not in following learned men
Who seem to know the way
But our path is clearly shown
By God when we do pray
In knowing that the last are first
It’s time to truly seek
The others that do fall behind
To carry those who’re weak
To make the last be first it seems
Take hearts who follow Him
And mimicking the mind of Christ
It’s all of us who’ll win
Diane Stewart ~ 1993
