What shall I really say?
For I have not much time;
To tell it is ok,
Lying would be a crime.
You know of the prophets,
Faith had conquered nations;
God did not have limits,
On any invasions.
We did what God approved,
Received what God promised;
As the foes were removed,
That loved their sinful lust.
We shut the mouths of lions,
Put out raging fires;
Killed thieves and villains,
To rid the desires.
We found strength while weak,
The power to defeat;
Through faith that we could seek,
Making us the elite.
Women got husbands back,
Believers had been healed;
For faith we did not lack,
For the truth is revealed.
We gain eternal life,
Though some were chained and whipped;
But did cope with the strife,
Knowing how we worshipped.
Many were stoned to death,
Or beheaded by sword;
Believing to last breath,
Jesus Christ is their Lord.
The world did not deserve,
Righteous people as them;
Those that willing to serve,
They should never condemn.
Their faith had been well known,
But none of them received;
That God said on His throne,
What they truly believed.
