What keeps you moving?

What keeps you moving? Call it not energy but a kind of grace

proceeding from the steady beat of that great Heart that yearns for you and knows

the rhythm you insistently do keep,

And so draws you with infallible precision (with all the others you must sometime surely know!)

through the many stony places where you must keep moving but cannot miss a step

into a new and unheard of rejoicing in what is even now being accomplished

And bestowing, always the clarity that keeps you out of range the simple courage to go on.
