April 1986




outside the sun shines

in through stained glass


seated before a man of God

they listen to His word



elbows on my knees

hands clasped

staring at my feet

eyes open during prayer


before the throne of God


at where those feet had been

at where those feet would go


what do I know

that I could guide them

it’s you they need, oh Lord

to help them on their way

guide them Lord

that as they walk, they walk with you
