Find Us Faithful

We're pilgrims on the journey
Of the narrow road,
and those who've gone before us line the way,
cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace.

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
Let us run the race not only for the prize;
But as those who've gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us,
the heritage of faithfulness passed on through Godly lives.

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful,
may the fire of our devotion light their way.
May the footprints that we leave
lead them to believe
and the lives we live inspire them to obey.
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone,
And our children sift through all we've left behind,
may the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
become the light that leads them to the road we each must find.

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful,

may the fire of our devotion light their way.
May the footprints that we leave
lead them to believe
and the lives we live inspire them to obey.
