Many Smiling Faces

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Hebrews 11:6

Without faith, it is impossible to please the Father
for we must believe He is, and is a rewarder to whom seek Him rather.

So daily I pray to seek God in faith
to receive His gift of grace if I patiently wait.

Luke 19:10
There was a time when the Son of Man
came to seek and save the lost in the land.

Then left His disciples to carry on after Him,
who taught and left an endless supply of other men.

To throughout the church age to witness,
and appeal to the lost that Jesus does bless.

To save those down-trodden and poor in spirit
for eternal life in Paradise for those who believe it.

Open our eyes, Lord Jesus, to see Your salvation
marching on and on throughout this lost nation.

Just for our lifetime, please let us witness your grace
as many come to believe with joy expressed on their face.
