Rahab's Reward

"Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day" (Joshua 6:25).  "Blessed is the man that heareth Me, watching daily… For whoso findeth Me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD" (Proverbs 8:35).  "Jesus answering said… Seest thou these great buildings?  There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down… but My words shall not pass away" (Mark 13:2,31). 

When Rahab was rewarded well,
Her household found God's favor too,
Who came at last to safely dwell
With those who knew God's words were true. 

How blest are those who daily hear
The words of Christ, our God and Savior,
To find His mercy and draw near
With humble hearts that find His favor. 

We watch and work, as Rahab did,
Persuading souls to find God's grace
And all the treasures that are hid
In Jesus Christ, our Hiding Place.  

How wondrous the account is, Lord,
Of faith displayed throughout all ages,
As seen in Rahab's sweet reward
Recorded in the Scripture's pages.
