THE TEST

Before the final sunset,
Before the final say,
Before the final orders come
That say this is the day

I ask again this morning,
Lord hear again my plea,
Be the strength I seek to face
This storm that comes for me

My course was set so long ago
A vow I swore to keep
My heading I can’t alter
Though the waves are growing steep

The fury of the storm
Can never stay me from my quest
Into the wind I sail
Until I reach that final test
