From Matthew 14:25-27:  “And early in the morning He came walking toward them on the sea.  But when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, ‘It is a ghost!’  And they cried out in fear.  But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, ‘Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.'”

Following God’s commandments

Delivering steadfast courage

Building up one’s faith and trust

Go sends us forth, encouraged

 

Imagine walking each day

With Biblical superstars

Amazing stories with truth

God waiting near, not too far

 

Israel cries out in Egypt

God hears their anguish and pain

Moses’ courage answers prayers

Pharaoh’s heart, forever slain

 

God commissions a leader

Joshua destined to lead

His faith in God carries strength

His plan and vision succeeds

 

Daniel faces certain death

Overcoming his demise

God foils lions’ hunger

Courage arrives in disguise

 

Christ completes His final task

A Cross marks defeat, they say

His living breath creates light

Salvation, lives from that day

 

Boldness, defined by our Lord

Confronting uncertain pain

Faithful and steadfast courage

God’s love, never will abstain
