Faithfully Following

"According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work... and Moses blessed them" (Exodus 39:42,43).  "O love the LORD, all ye His saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful" (Psalm 31:23).  "A faithful messenger...  refresheth the soul of his masters" (Proverbs 25:13).  "Follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.  Fight the good fight of faith... keep that which is committed to thy trust" (1 Timothy 6:11,12,20). 

The tabernacle work was finished
According to the Lord's command. 
Not one instruction was diminished
To which they put their heart and hand. 

How good it is to love the Lord
By doing what we're told to do! 
His pleasure is our heart's reward
In all we faithfully pursue. 

We're led in paths of righteousness
Because our Shepherd lives today
To lead His sheep where He will bless
All those who faithfully obey. 

O Lord, our Savior and our King,
Since You delivered us from wrath,
We faithfully are following
Your steps of love upon our path.
