Every Toiling Inch 

God, it has to be yours,Every toiling inch!

Father! I am so tired

of laboring just to feel life

fall through my aging fingers.

Christ! let me walk on!

I fall gnarled and weary

to a beaten ground!

God! Let me be love and let

love become me!

And alas! Father! Father!

Do not take love away!

Lover of my soul,

help me to give You

every toiling inch!

And may every toiling inch

give You to me!
