It’s Easier

It’s easier to be a light
To people far away
Than to be a constant witness
To the home folks every day.

The pressure keeps on mounting;
The anger in me boils;
Behind closed doors I’m failing;
The family recoils.

Ah Lord, I’ve let Thy calling
Fall down, escape from me!
I did not see my mission
Was to my family.
