Living by Their Faith by Raymond A. Foss

All of them, each one
all who have gone before us
in some sense, all of them
living by their faith

Unlike Thomas,
those who walked with him,
a future unseen, distant
needing to trust in God alone

The saints of our faith
the patriarchs, the sinners
all of them needing
to trust in God alone

In their example,
though they often stumbled
a promise of salvation
if we repent and believe

Christ alone our savior
his burden, his payment
sacrificing himself
on the altar of the cross

Giving himself
so that we may find life
that through him
we may return to our loving God
