Who will fight our battles?
Who will go before us?
Lest we make the same errors that were made in the past
Errors recorded for our benefit
Nevertheless, the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, “No, but there shall be a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.” (1 Samuel 8:19-20 NASB)
Who will lead us?
In this but a short journey
Through a world so troubled
Each one of us given a light to hold high
To walk through the darkest of path
Declaring praises to our God
Sounding the trumpet
Even if the darkness seems to close in on us sometimes
So much injustice, so many lies, so many gray areas
A loud voice above all the noise is heard,
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16KJV)
We keep walking this walk of faith
Even when it seems as if our lights are dimming
Our God is going before us, He is fighting our battles
The just shall live by faith
