He Has Heard His Master’s Footfalls
His life is full of din,
His life is full of rush,
His life is full of hurry.
He is a picture of insincerity,
He is a picture of ingratitude,
He is a picture of failure.
He fails to silence the storm of his flesh,
He fails to come out of the abyss of his doubt,
He fails to bury the coffin of his fear.
He shall be saved,
He shall be liberated,
He shall be fulfilled.
He has heard his Master’s footfalls.
