"Rock Steady"

Mara L. Baer

I want to be rock steady, a firm foundation laid,
So the storms of life won't turn my sights away.
Rock steady!

First it begins with the yearnin',
Burnin' deep inside, inside your soul.
Always your thoughts keep a'churnin'
Turnin' always, always toward the goal,
Of surrendering control.


(*** chorus ***)
Rock steady, a firm foundation laid,
So the storms of life won't turn my sights away.
Rock steady!

Feelings explode and excitement runs high,
Spirit of joy, fill my heart.
But it's day after day,
When the battles are fought.
I need the glow, not the spark.

 (*** repeat chorus ***)
  (**** musical interlude ****)
  (*** repeat chorus ***)

Faith is the solid beginning
When the feeling slips, it slips away.
Reading His word keeps me winning,
And talking to Jesus every, every day,
Hearing what he has to say.
(*** repeat chorus ***)
