Traveling to Beersheba
Into the Lord’s womb
The birthing of the patriarchs
Happened none too soon

All the world was evil
Refusing God’s way
Building up their holdings
Calling it their day

Then the Lord came calling
Abraham believed
One as dead to living
Became God’s man

Life to the dead
Birth by faith
Abraham walks
As God’s protégé

Reaching across the years
Abraham touches me
A man who went his own way
Called by God “follow Me”

I heard the call and answered
I will go where You say
All my life before You
I traveled death’s way

Now I live in victory
You are my King
Jesus Christ the Righteous
Brought faith to me
