Today, I saw a firm determination:
Ah-Hai sang "The Lord's Prayer" in front of the crowd.
Despised the fact that he could have sung something else;
Despised the fact that he forgot the lyrics during the first attempt;
Despised the fact that he must hold a Bible for the lyrics during the second attempt;
Despised the fact that he was alone up there singing;
Despised the fact that the crowd might not understand what he sang;
Despised the fact that, even the crowd did understand, they might not give a damn,
He still sang on and finished it.
Today, I saw a firm determination,
and, along with it, God's glory being magnified.
