FAITH RISES!

Faith rises as a champion
for the lowest child of God
as well as for the seasoned saint
who’ve walked where angels trod

Faith rises in the time of need
as well as times of much
Faith rises when hope clings
by threads in the face of hopeless odds

Faith rises as a champion
and Grace stands by His side
Peace also calmly stands along
with Love and comforts God’s dear child

That Champion, Faith, then takes God’s Word
and with His shield in place
He wields that Great and Mighty Sword
’til doubt has been disgraced

When Faith has brought the calm again
He mellows, becomes soothingly
the gentle face of God in man
He watches unassumingly

For, Faith is not a showy Champ
He shrinks from aggrandizement
But, rest assured He’s in your camp
At your despairing call, Faith Rises!

-Donald R. Sansbury, 2013
