The Mission!

Psalms 144:1
"Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight."

II Corinthians 10:4
"For the weapons of our warefare are not carnal, but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds."

Ephesians 6:11
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye might be able to stand aganst the wiles of the devil."

Psalms 31:1
"In thee O Lord do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness."

I Corinthians 9:24
"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? so RUN, that ye may obtain.

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
