Look ahead, for the horizon is fixed and sure
and the Hope of the Righteous is waiting.
Our sails are unfurled and full of Glory;
they snap boldly in Promise’s gusts.
Look ahead to be warmed by the fire
set aflame in Obedient breasts
where nothing defiles or deters our course;
putrid guile finds no place in our ports.
Freedom awaits those who will not yield
to man-pleasing’s weakening ways;
but their grasp remains firm in the Father’s field,
their necks faced like flint toward day.
At this time we must remain stalwart:
refusing to crush Righteousness;
denying our own understanding,
turning soulish translations away.
God says one thing, but we miss His Truth
by assuming He’s saying another.
Turn your eyes from deception and live!
Make His quiet humility your friend.
With all your strength, look ahead,
for the future is set and The City awaits;
with unshakeable hearts – LOOK AHEAD!
