By Faith

"By faith" one of the major themes
Of the Christian Bible

By faith Abraham left for a land unknown
By faith Joseph endured in prison
By faith Moses led the Hebrews out of Egypt
By faith Joshua led them into Canaan
And so it was throughout the Old Testament
Judges, Kings, Prophets who "by faith"
Trusted and obeyed God
Their faith counted unto them as righteousness

The New Testament continues the theme
By faith Mary bore God's Son
By faith Jesus' followers listened to His call
By faith St. Paul turned from persecutor
To one of the persecuted
Not time to list them all
The Epistle to the Hebrews has quite a list
Of those "who by faith" walked with God
The New Testament gives name to many more

"By faith" still holds us firm who believe in Christ



Who are more than conquerors "by faith"
