The Sand in My Sandals

The grit under my feet
the feel of the weight lifted
in each step I take
sand in my sandals

The dirt, the dust of this place
The sun-baked soil, the warmth
carried as I walk, as I journey

All of us, missionaries in the world
sent as they were sent
to do his work, to spread his message
to heal in his redeeming name
