We struggle in the tension
of a call to walk in faith;
this challenge to be servants,
built on God’s astounding grace.
We place our hopes and terrors
in the wounded hands of Christ
and set out on a journey
which demands we pay a price.

We know we cannot settle
when the call of Christ has come:
in desert and oasis
or when faith and joy are numb.
Our life as holy pilgrims
is patterned on the Son:
his bruised and staggered footsteps
mark the journey we must run.
