The kingdom key that we call faith
Is certainly one that we must
Employ as we journey through life.
Though it isnít easy to trust,
When disappointment clings tightly
And weíre used to liars and cons.
Itís easy to nurture our doubts,
When we rehearse our suffered wrongs.
But itís hard, too, when things go well
And life just keeps flowing along.
We decide we donít need Godís strength,
Because weíre convinced we are strong.
Either way, weíre hopelessly duped
As we despair of finding hope.
So we settle for anxious thoughts
Of how in the world we will cope.
Forsake not the light that God sends
In the pages of His Word.
When ogres of discouragement come,
Remember to use your sword!
When facing snakes that lead astray,
And though lions of trial may roar,
Cling in faith to the Christ Who came
And for you His own blood poured.
Live your life in the peace that comes
From wholly trusting in the Lord.
True joy comes in your daily life
As you trust in Godís holy Word.
