Authority, Identity, Destiny (Hebrews 11:23-29)

Since God defines what goodness is,
There is no law which counters His,
Our faith fathers obedience,
To our greater authority.

Both Earth and Heaven lock in spar,
To claim us as their rightful heir,
Yet faith determines who you are,
And what is your identity.

A sinner’s passive to the truth,
A saint will always grace pursue,
Our faith will guide the things we do,
And follow God’s called destiny.

Generational Promises (Hebrews 11:20-22)

Cursed be him who curses you,
Blessed be him who blesses you.
The covenant of God succeeds,
To everyone of Abram’s seed.
Isaac, in his faith of to be,
In promises he could not see,
In accident he blessed his son,
Recovered faith when it was done.
And Jacob saw the promise dawn,
With twelve born sons to make him strong,
And dying, bowing over his staff,
He blessed first Ephraim, Manasseh last.
And Joseph trusted and believed,
His children would all one day leave
Their sojourn serving Pharaoh’s hand,
And come into the promised land.
And generations after him,
The Seed descended unto men.
The promised Christ to whom all bow;
Our promised land He’s making now!
The promises to Abraham,
God gives to every faithful man.

Sacrifice Your Precious Son (Hebrews 11:17-19)

“Go and take your precious son,
Born by your barren wife,
And on the hill that I will show,
Slay him in sacrifice.”
“Wait here to keep the caravan,
The boy and I alone,
Will go and will return to you,
When sacrifice is done.”
“There is no lamb, O father, why?
You tie my hands and feet.
I trust that you have heard the Lord,
Submitting willingly.”
“Lay not your hand upon the lad,
And stay your thirsty knife!
Behold the ram prepared for you,
Make him your sacrifice!”

“Go to earth, my precious Son,
And veil yourself in flesh.
And on the hill that I will show,
They will put You to death.”
“Wait here, while I will kneel and pray,
Keep watch and be alert,
For I will go away and die,
But surely I’ll return!”
“I am the lamb, O Father, see,
They pierced my hands and feet.
I trust you! I will drink this cup,
Though You’ve forsaken me.”
“Lay not your hand upon my Son!
Oh Death, release your prey!
Arise, Beloved, We have won,
Christ conquered Sin and Grave!”
