Monday Morning Reveille

Up and at ‘em
Herd or scat ‘em 
Hug and hold ‘em 
Wash and fold ‘em 
Training, teaching, 
Praying, preaching 
Hurting, hoping 
Seeing, groping 
Running, crawling, 
Flying, falling 
Laughing, crying 
Cheering, sighing 
Dawdlin’, hastin’ 
Time’s a-wastin’ 

Left foot, right foot 
Slipper, work-boot 
Slow or faster 
Let love master 
Sort and tally 
Hill or valley 
Squat or lanky 
Kind or cranky 
Old or younger 
Let sheer wonder 
Thunder, rumble 
Tremble, tumble 
Never grumble 
But be humble 

Winning, losing 
Waking, snoozing 
Seizing, yearning 
Leading, learning 
Lend or borrow 
Joy or sorrow 
Seen or hidden 
Bossed or bidden 
Don’t be lazy 
But keep busy 
Ev’ry season 
Make the reason 
In life’s story 
For God’s glory

For you were bought with a price. 
So glorify God in your body.
1 Cor.6:20

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, 
do all to the glory of God.
1 Cor.10:31

In the same way, let your light shine before others,
 so that they may see your good works 
and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

For from him 
and through him 
and to him are all things. 
To him be glory forever. 

Whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; 
whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—
in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. 
To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. 
1 Pet.4:11
