Wishing for change is only part

It takes a mighty change of heart

True, lasting progress to achieve

It comes to those who God believe.


A lofty goal can be a prize

For those who do not work despise.

But if you only wish instead,

Faith without works is merely dead.


Then on God’s grace we must rely.

To reach our goals to satisfy.

All of the things God’s law demands.

He bears us in His mighty hands.


A partnership of God and man.

Can then achieve God’s holy plan.

Start with a goal and bring God’s grace,

Then press on with a steady pace.
