PROGRESS VII

A chastened people now imparts
Wealth for the tent, because their hearts
Are willing, and are wise;
Recovered by God's grace, provide
For His place, where God may abide,
In spiritual supplies.

And soon, upon the desert sands,
The anointed tabernacle stands,
Enfolded in the cloud;
Now, by the Spirit, have a part
In what will answer to God's heart,
Spiritually endowed.

And now a priestly family
Begin to function comelily
According to God's ways;
Thus persons who are sanctified,
Influenced by Christ as glorified,
Begin to give God praise.

And should the camp remove, observe
The separated Levites serve
Under the priest's command;
Take opportunities God brings
To bear the consecrated things,
Lifting up holy hands.

Disdaining any human guide,
Israel, see the ark provide
The way for you to go;
Discounting man and all his views
Following Jesus you must choose
The road that He will show.
