Abraham Gained

Abraham gained what he never could earn;

harvested fruit of believing.

Wages are paid unto workers as due,

Gifts are a diff-er-ent thing.

Having no work beyond only trust.

Faith is the key to righteousness.

Justification fully by faith. 


Promised inheritance isn’t by law.

That would make faith wholly worthless.

Where there is law, violation is rife.

Faith is salvation’s single path

Abraham serves as the father of

all who follow in his path.

Free from the anguish of heaven’s wrath.
