The world was not worthy

NaPoWriMo day 30…I dropped out a while back, but decided to write one final poem as a last hurrah. It’s based on the end of Hebrews 11. 

The world was not worthy
Of them in that day
The ones who had stayed
When all was stripped away.

They shut the mouths of lions
And quenched the conq’ring flame
They suffered scorn and floggings
For the sake of His name.

They received their dead back to life
And in war obtained might
They enforced justice for all,
And put foreign armies to flight.

Through faith, they obtained the promise
Out of weakness were made strong
Through faith, they endured to the end
When Christ will right every wrong.
