It helps to be reminded
Of God’s promises
He keeps His promises
Israel wandered 40 years

Ten spies said no
Only two said yes
The majority didn’t know
The Call of God-the wilderness became their tomb

Forty years until they died
Even Moses was set aside
And then God moved
Joshua brought them home

A gift from God
Their newfound land
Israel declared their own
This land was now God’s home

We take God’s gift-New Life in Christ
Heaven is our home, yet on this earth we roam
Until that day He calls our name
And then we will be home
