Faith is assurance, hope of things unseen,
by which the whole of life has come to mean
days that are rich with trust in Who is sure,
nights that possess a confidence secure.
By faith our people, living long ago,
modeled a walk with God that we should know;
followed God's leading, anxious to obey,
focused their eyes upon the future day.
We who are living in an age removed,
still need the faith which those before us proved.
ease would seduce us, compromise, and fear;
human assumptions make the truth unclear.
Thanks be to God who gives the victory!
Like faithful forebears, we resolve to be;
foll'wing God's leading, anxious to obey,
keeping eyes fixed upon the future day.
