Manly Strength

Brothers, God has made you firm and strong
Not for empty, proud displays--
Brawny feats to grab some praise--
But to serve him all day long.

Other men have cleared the way,
Gone through deserts, jungles, mud,
Sacrificed their very blood
So that you'd be here today.

Honor, then, that legacy.
Join the fight for all that's right.
Lead and guard--by day, by night.
Be the light for all to see.

And I told them of the hand of my God that had been upon me for good, and also of the words that the king had spoken to me. And they said, “Let us rise up and build.” So they strengthened their hands for the good work. (Nehemiah 2:18 ESV)
