FAITH ON EARTH

When the Lord comes will He find faith on this earth?
The faith that believes in miracles
The faith that isn't based on past experience
And says it never happened this way before
Will he find faith when He cometh
The faith that believes when he hears God say "speak to this mountain"
He then speaks to the mountain and says "be thou removed"
Will he find this faith?

Will he find the faith of Abraham
The one who left behind his home town to walk with God
Who separated himself from Lot and chose the lesser land
Who would lay his own son on the altar for God
A man who would hold nothing back to walk with Him
The man who entertained strangers
The man who interceded for the righteous
Will he find this faith?

Will He find the faith of David
A man after Gods own heart who would fulfill all His will
A boy whom God anointed but did not assert his rights
A boy who could slay a giant with a stone
A young man hunted and chased but wasn't vindictive
A man who respected the Anointing of God
Who made preparations for a temple he had not seen
Will He find faith on this earth?

Will he find the faith of Ruth
A woman who would leave behind her family and cleave to her mother in law
Who would leave behind her people, language and her gods
A woman prepared to go to a country as an outsider
Who was humble enough to scavenge for food
Who considered an older man and took the advice of another
A woman full of virtue, hope and love
Will He find this faith?

Will He find the faith that says
I will go where You lead me, take me where you will
I will let the things You choose be my choice
Let me take your name and lose my identity
I give You my life, my all, my everything
As a bride prepared for her husband
Removing the veil from between her and her Lord
Knowing Him as he is - seeing Him face to face
