Before Our Eyes
Based on Galatians 3
Before our eyes was Christ portrayed,
Our sins upon the Cross we saw;
We heard the Word, by faith obeyed,
Yet we returned to works of Law.
What strange desire to prove our worth —
To turn to flesh that cannot save;
Why now renounce our spiritual birth,
For mortal works that only enslave?
If Abram placed in God his faith,
When he was given the blessed News,
Shall we, his sons, not also choose
To walk in trust on Calvary’s path?
This precious promise apart from merit,
We cannot earn, but must receive,
When we decide to thus believe,
And be immersed, his life to inherit.
