WALK BY FAITH

Straight outta the darkness and into the light
Believing in my masters might
I just stand still...for me He fights...
WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT

My hard heart beats and bleeds for those bad beasts...beating like a drum for the 
last,the lost,and the least
He's taken death's sting and given us life...
WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT

From the serpents in the sand to the eagles in the sky
For the lions in the jungle,full of prejudice and pride
To the lambs on the road,taking Gods righteous ride...
WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT

In ghetto garbage dumps where His faithful find gold mines
Killer kings now showing kindness as they dream of the divine
New doors open wide and some of the wicked come inside...
WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT

From the pulpit to the pews
From the many to the few
The good,bad,and ugly...In Gods shadow they unite
In the darkest devil day into that nightmare night...
WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT

Walkin by faith and never by sight...trading the sad and the sadistic for the 
supernatural and sublime
Swamps of sin and sewage turn into living water and holy wine
From the cradle to the casket
From conception until my last rites
No fear or frustration
No fright...
WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT

    now this is a battle cry. i loved the line about the serpent and the eagle. it tells me you have some bible knowledge and not just knowledge but a path to the truth/ as it was paved through old testiment pages. You'll find that i am a believer also. T. S.

    wow! Anthony... i love the poem,, different but, the perception of walking by faith is clever than walking by what others follow or are shown,,, great heart and spirit,..p.d.
