The Eyes of Faith

They walked before us

And were told

To you shall this be given

To you

To you

And yet they died without receiving.

 

Their lives were full

Of deeds and victories

Yet they did not dwell in the promise.

 

Larger than a single life

It waited

And came down 

Through the ages to us

That in us

Through us

We might live

What another only dreamed.

 

Displaying the victory 

They saw in their hearts

And with the eyes of faith.

“These all, having had testimony given to them through their faith, didn’t receive the promise, God having provided some better thing concerning us, so that apart from us they should not be made perfect.” Hebrews 11:39-40
