"Have a Little Faith" as written by and Don S. Reid....
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
Then God stopped in to visit
In the heat of the day
Said pretty soon they'll be a baby
Commin' your way

But Sarah laughed and said no
I don't belive 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 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
