FAITH

 

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,”

But not seen with the eye.

Faith is very central for here, and “bye and bye.”

Without faith we’ll never see Him

Who died our souls to bless.

It’s Faith! Not I hope so, or I guess.  

– eab, Mar. ’95

FAITH

I’ve never been to Bethlehem,

Nor walked by Galilee.

And the hills that knew my blessed Lord,

I may never live to see.

But I’ve tried to trace His footsteps,

Across the Sacred Page.

And by faith, I know He rules today,

As He has in every age.

O Faith, faith without it,

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.

– eab, Nov. ‘73

Faith may see difficulties but it does not magnify them…

Faith may be sore tempted, but it does not yield to discouragement…

Faith obeys…real faith obeys when there is no sign.
