Fellowship with the Faithful

"And it came to pass, as they [Elijah and Elisha] still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven" (2 Kings 2:11).  "Teach me Thy way, O LORD; I will walk in Thy truth: unite my heart to fear Thy name" (Psalm 86:11).  "Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not" (Proverbs 8:33).  "There be some that trouble you, and would pervert the Gospel of Christ" (Galatians 1:7). 

How good it is to fellowship  
With those who love and serve our Savior,
Who know the truth that will equip
His faithful servants with His favor. 

Elijah with Elisha talked
Until the fiery chariot came. 
With hearts united they had walked
To love and fear the Savior's name.

It's wise for us to walk with those
Who faithfully have served the Lord
To hear instruction they disclose
By their experience explored. 

We have our  fellowship with You,
O Lord, our faithful God and Guide,   
And walk with those who likewise do,
And not with those who turn aside.
