Have a Little Faith Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, God got things back together
And the world started growing again
Noah's sons had sons
And a descendant of Shem's
Was a man called 'Abram'

God hand-picked him, made him the leader of his race
The founder of his religion and changed his name to Abraham
His trust in God was like nothing you've ever seen before
The father of the faithful, the father of all that believe

God told Abraham to go to Canaan land
And start a brand new life and be a brand new man
He took his wife and nephew and did as he was told
But it's hard startin' over at seventy-five years old

But God said, "Abraham, look, for as far as you see
All of that land is a gift from Me"
It's a lesson for the learnin' for the likes of you and me
Just have a little faith and you'll see

Well, Abraham was closin' in on ninety and nine
And Sarah, bless her heart, wasn't very far behind
When God stopped in to visit in the heat of the day
Said, "Pretty soon, there'll be a baby comin' your way"

But Sarah laughed and said, "No, I don't believe that it's true
Me with a child, with an old man like you?"
It's a lesson for the learnin' for the likes of you and me
Just have a little faith and you'll see

"Abraham, it's time for a big sacrifice
Build yourself a fire and sharpen up your knife
Take your little boy, Isaac, and put him in the flame
And kill him and burn him in God's Holy name"

Then God said, "Abraham, don't! It was only a test
You passed with flyin' colors ahead above the rest"
It's a lesson for the learnin' for the likes of you and me
Just have a little faith and you'll see

The father of the faithful, the leader of the clan
He started out as just a simple country man
But God loved Abraham and Abraham loved Him
It's a story to remember when your faith is growin' dim

And you get tired and you say, "Ah, it was different back then
But remember that they were only just men"
It's a lesson for the learnin' for the likes of you and me
Just have a little faith and you'll see
Just have a little faith and you'll see
Just have a little faith and you'll see
