1 Faith, while trees are still in blossom,
plans the picking of the fruit;
faith can feel the thrill of harvest
when the buds begin to sprout.
2 Long before the dawn is breaking,
faith anticipates the sun.
Faith is eager for the daylight,
for the work that must be done.
3 Long before the rains were coming,
Noah went and built an ark.
Abraham, the lonely migrant,
saw the light beyond the dark.
4 Faith, uplifted, tamed the water
of the undivided sea,
and the people of the Hebrews
found the path that made them free.
5 Faith believes that God is faithful--
"He will be what He will be!"
Faith accepts his call, responding,
"I am willing, Lord: send me."
