DISTANT DRUMMER

I hear a distant drummer
Beating out the pace I go
He’s there on my horizon
Where he leads I do not know

It is constant like a heartbeat
Hear it in the day and night
Giving me my only mission
Carry on until the light

The drum beats growing louder
As this march is nearly done
And I’ll make camp for the last time
To prepare to meet the Son
