water in the drought – v4

we must be humble on the journey,
faithful in the desert,
offering water in the drought
giving in to our struggles
offering to God
all that we can offer
not just the excess
it will be enough.

we must only give Caesar
that which he claims,
and no more than that,
offering God the rest
water in the desert
faithful in the dust
our few coins offered to God
it will be enough.
