Find us Faithful....

This is one of my favorite songs -- by Steve Green.
We had it sung at one of our children's baptism and
it's our desire to pass on to our children's children a faith-filled heritage!
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 though 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
