To Live By Faith
by Michael Romani

Life comes hard to deal its hand
Striking harder than we understand
Living in faith to our very best
Ever hopeful that we will pass the test

Even the apostles prayed for increase
Though a grain's faith makes doubt cease
All things prayed and then we have thought
In self denial of the very things sought

Brought to our knees by things we need
Ever mindful of that tiny mustard seed
Without faith it is impossible to please God
This is the way of growing however odd

For without belief, everything comes to naught
God is who He is and the one that we ought
To believe in Him truly in all of His very ways
Is what's necessary to living holy all of our days

Help for our belief in all of our non-belief
Takes us step from step from our dark grief
Despite our moments of incessant carnality
It comes on strong in all of our humanity
