Find us faithful

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

Chorus:
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

刚从查经小组回来,感到非常非常地感动和感慨,我的学妹们真是一群既勇敢又诚恳的女生。
现在的我好像看着女儿们长大的妈妈,觉得把所有事情交给他们就放心了,所以就想起这首歌。
歌词说到我们现在所作所为,将会影响到我们的后代,希望学妹们会'find us faithful'
而以耶稣作为榜样,成为人人都看齐的对象,活出基督。从这些学妹们身上学到了许多道理,
从他们的见证里看得到主耶稣基督是他们生命中的唯一的依靠。虽然她们身上都背着许多的
不为人知的负担,但她们没有因此而对上帝为她们安排的未来而感到害怕,迷失自。她们
坚持着诚恳的一颗心,全心全意向着上帝,成为他所喜悦的儿女。感谢神把她们送来这里,
成为这里的一个为你发光的灯塔,照耀了所有人的前程。感谢主!
