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 every 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.
