Mark had a strong faith in Jesus Christ. We now celebrate his acceptance, by Our Lord, into eternal Glory with The Father of all.
He gives strength to the weary,
And to the one who lacks might He increases power.
Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
