As I put myself out on the line,
Heart pounding, sweat on brow,
Million eyes are savoring my every movement,
Like a majestic cheetah on the prowl,
I have to go all out..DO IT NOW!!
Hours of toiling, discipline and tears,
No time for defeat, drown out all fears.
Make my country proud, rise above all ecstasy,
Close to Godliness I must soar,
Forever endearing, yearning for more.
What will I own?
Gold, Silver or Bronze,
Or the proud colors of my National Flag..
Help me God to soar like an eagle
Above the clouds
To sweet victory.
