I had been running for so long.
My sides were hurting!
The pain was getting strong!
I trained so hard!
I trained so long!
The finish was close!
I mustered the strength to keep pressing on!
The race of life can seem so long!
That's why I'm singing you this song!
I want you to know - the one who died for you -
because his grace can make you strong!
The banks were steep!
My head was spinning around!
But as I rounded the turn, I heard the roar of the crowd!
I forgot my pain, my spirit soured!
I crossed the finish line - just what I came there for!
