They Did It Too

They did it too in olden days
That thing of base necessity
When all the ends didn’t quite meet
They just kept going
…so must we

They did it too, and could not stop
The clock from its insistent plea
Of letting go or getting old
They simply did it
…so will we

And just as they in ancient days
Passed through the trouble that must be
In day by daily strength and grace
From He who loves us
…so do we

They did it too and didn’t know
The Unknown's ‘what-must-be-will-be’
Waiting where morning follows night
They worked, hoped, prayed
…and so should we

It is simply too much
To try to carry
More than the grace of God allows
In the moment we are in…
