Firm In Faith


Tune: Deus Tuorum Militum

('Awake, awake, fling off the night')

Philippians 1 v.3-6


Paul thanks God for Philippians

They be His true daughters and sons

Give thanks each time he remembers

Them, joyful memory concurs


Prays for the with joy, for the ybe

Christ-like examples, others see

Their witness, and fellowship they

Have had with Paul from the first day


First day they net, till present time

Through the ups and downs of life's rhyme

He confident that God would so

Work in them, they His graces know


Sure that God, He who had begun

A good work in them through His Son

Would bring it to completion, they

Stay firm unto Christ's return day

    Lead me down to the honoured town of Philippi where Lydia by the river fed Paul's motley crew and opened her home whence the Holy Spirit blew.

      Thanks CB. Seems like those lines could be turned into a song - or 'Chorus'. As long as a Chorus is not sung around a dreaded 5 million times repetitively! lol.
      'Be turnéd into song' as a line of a hymn goes. Not the ..... éd accent there!

        Wow yeah, just compose 7 or so stanzas more and there will be no repetition to be spoken of.
