Hymn Text: Missing the Mark

Date: January 23rd, 2017
Title: Missing the Mark
Meter: 7 7 7 7 D
Topic: repentance, forgiveness, progression

A sin is missing the mark
An arrow already flown.
It’s not a shot in the dark,
But a target, clearly known.

We must then adjust our aim
So we land closer next time.
In missing there is no shame,
But giving up is the crime.

The wind can blow us off course
And countless noises distract,
While ev’ry natural force
Hinders our power to act.

Our Savior knows of our plight
Will help us truer to aim.
And though our progress be slight,
We will not remain the same.

Though now we might not perfect
Our aim while we live below,
Our God will our course direct,
And aid on our aim bestow.

Until we in some bright day
Land right on the center place.
Perfected in God’s own way
Directed by God’s own grace.
