For how long shall thy journey be?
A question of life for our time to see
As Nehemiah the civil servant we hear
The cup bearer for the king
His dedication was clear
A leave of absence on his journey he went
To Jerusalem, the wall, his energy was spent
He returned to the King
Twelve years had past
His journey completed, secure at last
How is our journey as our days are spent?
To return to our king as our time is lent
God knows the answer, our King of salvation
As we tread though life giving him complete dedication
O what incite as Brian Crawford gives the meaning
Our Lord and Saviour, His workmanship we are seeing.
A presentation from the Book of Nehemiah we’re told
The words of the Lord don’t let it grow old.
A Bible Lesson presented with enthusiasm and hope
Conviction and New Birth, faith in Christ to cope
Children, the foundation, the future to see
Building on Christ, God’s word for me
