Set Your Back

Set your back to the setting sun
Leave behind you what’s left undone.
Lay your head down, your rest is won
Set your face to the place
where you’ll see tomorrow come
Set your back to the setting sun.
When your day ends dark & stormy
And a hole’s worn through your soul
Turn loose your hold on the burdens that you carry
& Fix your sight back on your journey’s goal.
When you’re weary from pulling in the harness
You’re shoulders chafed & sore
Tend to your wounds and soothe your aching muscles
& heed the words of one who’s gone before:
