‘Faith is the substance of things hoped for
The evidence of things not seen,’
In its purest form it’s wholesome
And with nothing in between.
Faith gives us eyes to see
That God made everything,
And although He is invisible
He is Lord and King of kings.
Faith gives us reassurance
That the word of God is true,
With an everlasting hope
And in conjunction with peace too.
It was by faith that Abraham
Left his place and lived in tents,
But his children were innumerable
And his blessings were immense.
By faith baby Moses was hidden
Against the king’s command,
And by faith the Israelites passed through the Red Sea
Seeing miracles from God’s hands.
By faith Noah built the ark
Whilst being ridiculed indeed,
But his household it was saved
And where God’s deliverance was seen.
By faith the walls came down
In the land of Jericho,
Having been encircled for the seven days
And where a miracle was shown.
By faith Isaac was to be offered;
Abraham’s only begotten son,
But God saw Abraham’s faithfulness
And ultimately no harm was ever done.
‘Without faith it is impossible’
To please the Lord since we must believe,
That when we seek God He will reward us
And many miracles we’ll see.
