Posts Tagged ‘awfully lean’

I’ve never been to Bethlehem,

Nor walked by Galilee.

And the hills that knew my blessed Lord,

Across the Sacred Page. 

And by faith, I know He rules today,

As He has in every age.

You just cannot please the Lord.

Have faith, faith, to doubt it, 

Brother, you cannot afford.

For faith is the substance

Of things hoped for and yet not seen.

And lack of faith is why the church is so awfully lean.
