Faith And Instructions
The law was just a shadow of what God prepared to come.
The sacrifices it prescribed, could not do what Christ has done.
If the blood of bulls and goats could take away our sin,
They would not have had to offer them, over and over again.
Through Jesus we have boldness, to enter God's holy place.
So assemble with other believers till we meet him face to face.
Through faith we know God made the world; the unseen to appear.
Abel obeyed and Enoch ascended, when God said, come up here.
Without faith you can't see God, but by it Noah was saved.
Abraham was given a brand new land. By faith he and Sarah obeyed.
By faith God gave them Isaac. Then Jacob and Joseph came.
By faith Moses chose to lead God's people, not be called by Pharaoh's name.
By faith they passed through the Red Sea and saw the walls of Jericho fall.
By faith Rahab protected God's men by letting them down that wall.
Then there was Gideon, Barak, and Samson, Jephthah and David the king.
Samuel, and all the prophets, but God made a better thing.
We're surrounded by all these witnesses, so run with patience the race.
Looking unto Jesus, till we see him face to face.
Don't despair when God corrects us. What son does the father not teach?
Follow peace and live in the holiness, till the end of our journey we reach.
Let brotherly love continue. Be kind to passersby.
Who knows which ones are angels, God has sent down from on high?
Be content and appreciate what you have. Jesus always is with thee.
He will never leave or forsake us. Don't worry what man does to me.
Obey your rulers and pray for us. To Christ be always true.
Salute the brothers and all the saints until I come to you.
