Mission seven: Mission Complete
I just returned to the home base.
This tour of duty will soon be through.
I brush my teeth and wash my face.
The captain assigned another job to do.
Quickly, I grabbed my gear off my bed.
Tonight on a rescue mission, I am sent.
I place my helmet on my head.
I walked out the door ...
My soul is in despair.
Nevertheless, my faith continues.
My faith is built upon the Rock,
The Rock is mighty and strong.
My body is growing tired.
My feeble eyes are ready to close.
However, His Word continues to live in my heart,
For the Rock is mighty and strong.
