One takes too much
Another too little
The balance of life
Lies there in the middle
Take heed of your power
And attend to your call
Don’t shrink from the work
Nor make others crawl
The power you’re offered
Holds blessing and good
While it also hides danger
If not understood
Be cautious and careful
As you faithfully serve
For the work is much needed
But no praise you deserve
The enemy comes 
And whispers your name
But tend not to your ego
And seek not your fame
Simply honor the giver
Of the power you hold
Let God’s gracious love
Be the story full told
