Righteousness Remains the Rock of Faith
By William Byrd. Performed by John Sankey.
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Righteousness remains the rock of faith,|
As what one does sustains what one believes.
Mere hypocrites might pray, the Prophet saith;
Actions must be words the heart conceives.
Do, then, what acts and rituals are due,
As faith becomes a flame that feeds on you,
No less than as a fire consumes dry leaves.
