It's The Doing That's Hard. - Poem by R. K. Hart

It's not the knowing, it's the doing that's hard.
It's the first step, not the first yard.
It's having the strength to do the right thing.
That's what makes a man a pauper or king.

Whether you sit on a throne or easy chair,
How do you act on what you know is fair.
If you act on expedient or true,
This is the measure of you.

As water takes the easy course,
Where it meets less force.
Each of us are given a voice,
Each one is given a choice.

Standing may mean standing alone,
As an honest life we hone.
In no shadow will we stand,
Small will be the member of our band.

Come let us be found,
Where truth does abound.
Where truth is found in the hearts of men,
Where truth is strength and lies must bend.

Our captain Jesus leads us on,
As the battles wage He leads our song.
I may tire and weapons blunt,
He will always be out in front.

So take the first step to do what's right,
Doing it in the Saviours might.
He has promised to show the way,
It He that knows the content of each day.
