There is no way of learning faith except by trial
Stedfastly trusting Jesus as you walk that lonely mile
Faith is the substance of things hoped and prayed for
Holding on to Jesus while the storms around you roar

Trials that come your way put your faith to the test
Causes you to tremble and robs you of your zest
In your weakened state you call upon his name
The one named Jesus who heals the sick and lame

You may be in God's school of faith this very day
Weeping as others are singing, even too weak to pray
Your situation and circumstances seem too much to bear
Surrounded by difficulties as you eat your meager fare

Hebrews 11 tells of graduates from God's faith school
They trusted God even though they were called a fool
They realized that they were strangers in this land
God had their names engraved in his loving hand

The lessons learned in God's school of faith are priceless
He gives you grace to endure your trials and heavy stress
One day you will see clearly the results of your faith test
When he speaks the word and says enter into your rest
