Disciple’s Creed

Sparse the covering that cannot hide,

The stain of sin remains inside;

til Father, Son and Spirit abide –

Adam will yet reign…

Mortals speak that all is well,

But the tongue will the heart’s true nature tell

Devouring tempest set on fire of hell –

Itself cannot contain

Men will reap what they have sown;

The way of peace they have not known

Till the Shepherd makes them his own

The sheep will ever stray

Thought that makes the heart to leap –

The Father will His promise keep!

The bride to awaken from her sleep,

Her glory to be seen

Eyes now fixed on Calvary

The light by which we now see;

We will now and ever be,

By Your Spirit led

Hastened by the coming hour,

Strengthened by all heaven’s power;

Lest Hell another soul devour,

Lord draw all men to thee…
