find us faithful

we're pilgrims on a journey of a narrow road
and those who've gone before us line the way
cheering on the faithful
encouraging the weary
theirs lives a stirring testament of God's sustaining grace

surrounded by so great a crowd of witnesses
let us run the race not only for the prize
but as those who've gone before
let us leave to those to those behind
the heritage of faithfulness pass 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 lead 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
come the light that leads them to the road we each must find
