A Fearful Pilgrim Hesitates at New Year’s Door, in verse

ZwPI8cfk@biblestoryskits.comA [1] Fearful Pilgrim Hesitates at New Year’s Door, in verse
About 2 minutes, based on Prov. 3:5:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”

Participants (No need to memorize lines; the aim is for all to take part, not to perform)
   Timekeeper
   Pilgrim.
   Prompter      Shouts a phrase and Echoes repeat it.
   Echoes         All others who want to take part are Echoes. They need no script.

Timekeeper

I am called Father Time, and I open the gate
     That will lead to next year, and I never am late.

Prompter & Echoes

And he never delays!

Timekeeper

This old hourglass I’ve turned, that I keep by the door
     All three sixty-five* times, every day’s twenty-four.

Now, a Pilgrim has stopped, and he checks today’s date.
     He now looks at his watch, as he fears next year’s fate!

Do not pause, timid Pilgrim! Come enter next year.
     If you trust in the Lord, then there’s nothing to fear!

Prompter & Echoes

Don’t be afraid!

Pilgrim

But it’s dark; the unknown always fills me with dread.
     Can you loan me a light, so I’ll see where to tread?         

Timekeeper

Simply take Jesus’ hand, not a light I’d provide.
     Do not fear what’s ahead; our dear Lord is your Guide

Prompter & Echoes

Jesus goes ahead of you!

Pilgrim

Then in case I go on, and I do not turn back.
     Can you say what will be, if a light I should lack?

Timekeeper

You are never to worry about how you’ll fare.
     Since tomorrow depends on today’s faithful prayer.

Pilgrim

You have stirred my weak faith with a hope that’s sublime.
     I will walk on with Christ just one step at a time.

Prompter & Echoes

One step at a time!
