The Lord Jesus has given each of us
A “measure of faith”
With which to seek His Love
And receive His grace

Even if it’s no larger than a mustard seed
This measure of faith will grow
If the caretaker of the garden
Earnestly wants to know

The Creator of the Heavens and Earth
Ruler over the moon and stars
The King of Kings, The Lord of Lords
Your faith will ignite, transcending you afar

Into the heavenly realm with The Lord
He returns blessing to all those who use
Their measure of faith to show others His grace
And to pass along the Good News

Of The Gospel…according to Christ

That He is The Way to eternal life
A place beyond death and the grave
Where those who believe and trust in Jesus name
Are rewarded for their measure of faith

Jesus trampled over sin and death on the Cross
Where He took our place
Carrying the sin debt of the world
So that we would not have to face

Eternal punishment, the second death
A place of filth and stench, of fire and pain,
A place devoid of mercy
A place with no water…no rain

The Bible speaks of death
As separation from God
Not cessation from existence
Yet, some believe that school of thought

And there are those who claim to be atheists
They don’t believe in our Creator, The Lord God
And shouldn’t be surprised when they die
Their measure of faith propelled them right where they are

No, death is not the end for the Believer
And, it is not the end for the Un-saved
Eternity is an infinite circle that depends
On how you use your measure of faith
