The text describes a dream in which the person is walking on a beach with Christ. Together, they leave two sets of footprints in the sand behind them. At some points the two trails dwindle to one, especially at the lowest and most hopeless moments of the character's life. When the person questions God about this, believing that God must have abandoned his follower during those times, God gives the explanation: "During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
