Refined by the fire of the prairie's hot sun, Drenched by the heaven's cold tears, Scarred by the sharp edges of wagon-wheel ruts, Realizing and reconciling all my fears, Finding a home where God would have me plant My feet on pure gospel sod, Marked by the footprints of those who came before Each of them holding to the "Iron Rod"; 46
