Hebrews 4:1-11

Better than Canaan

A poetic reflection on Hebrews 4:1-11

 

A promised rest, this still remains

Of which some may fall short

Careful be to Gospel preached

Just as to old saints taught

 

In us the faith that you inspire

Was in their hearts not found

Nor to them did this promise fit:

“every place, your land”

 

In time of anger, God did speak

They shall not enter my rest

This is a land that You prepared

With milk and honey blessed

 

As He rested, so shall we

If we hold fast to Christ

An eternal day, no dawn or dusk

No hunger, tear, or thirst

 

The day He sets, He calls today

Not like days of Canaan’s rest

Not like the days that Joshua gave

A land more and greater blessed
