Letting Go And Keeping The Faith
There is sound advice in a song about a drifter and a gambler
His words are brief, but true, and Kenny was never a rambler,
In the process of knowing when to hold em and then fold em
Sometimes it is the letting go that is the most difficult to do.
There is a season for gathering; a season made for scattering
It is not always easy to discern the pathway you should take,
There is a time to make a difference and to truly be mattering
This play of the Earth is one in which you should daily partake.
You will get knocked down a time or two, will you stay down?
If you are rocked into your core, will you cry out with a sound?
Lord, give me the strength to make it through this day in peace
May my praise for You be the chorus of a child, one of the least.
Some of you are climbing while others are winding down the hills
Others may now be whining and are only in it seeking the thrills,
Help who you can and know that there is a plan that transcends
Be the one who hopes in the One whose perfect will never ends.
If you are a player, be the one who strums sweetly on six strings
Making melodies that are symphonies worthy of lords and kings,
The ballad has closed and it is supposed that the pages will turn
Have faith that those you let go will find their way and thus learn.
