Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba and called there on the name of the Lord, the Everlasting God. And Abraham sojourned many days in the land of the Philistines.

Genesis 21:33-34

A stranger there

faith's forefather

trusted God

and journeyed on

Flocks grazed

children played

in a land unowned

while they travelled on

Pitching tents

by faith living

pursuing the Lord

obeying God's Word

Content to believe

a land would one day be his

Abraham staked claim

and let God build his fame

Always a stranger

but a believer still

he wandered a land

seeing God's hand

A son now here

God's promise known

The old man believed

and good gifts received
