Rahab was Right

"She [Rahab] said unto the men… the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath" (Joshua 2:9-11).  "Through Thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way" (Psalm 119:104).  "The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.  The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble" (Proverbs 4:18,19).  "A voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My beloved Son: hear Him" (Mark 9:7). 

In retrospect, we now can see
That Rahab, after all, was right. 
No matter who would not agree,  
She chose the path of heaven's light.

Upon this path of understanding,
The light of God shall lead the way. 
It is the way of God's commanding,
From which the wicked go astray. 

The Lord can see when hearts are humble,
Like Rahab, who was right to fear,
But many in the darkness stumble
With apathy as wrath draws near. 

O Lord, with Rahab, we rejoice
To know it's right to seek Your face,
As we are taught by heaven's voice
To hear You and to trust Your grace.
