This is Our Day

By: Nina R. Hall

It’s time to stand, my brethren,

Lift up your swords and fight!

Join hands with one another

And live for what is right!

We’re living in a battle, friend,

This life is not a game.

We’re in the fight until the end

In Jesus’ conquering name.

Why do we live as if we’re owed

A life of comfort and ease?

We aren’t supposed to make each choice

Ourselves alone to please.

Our fathers who have gone before

Have left a bloody trail.

They stood their ground and gave their lives –

Stood firmly ‘mid the gale.

And now that cloud of witnesses

Encompasses us about;

Cheering us on to win the crown

And never sway nor doubt.

But know, my brother, that this is our day.

We cannot live in the past.

They served their generation well

And now their crowns they’ve cast.

Fight the good fight of Faith, dear ones,

For night is hastening on.

You are on the victory side,

But we war ‘neath a setting sun.

Lift up your heads, O Christians,

Strive for holiness in our land.

 And choose to see with sober hearts

That this is our day – our day to stand.

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside ever weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1

Nina came to know the Lord as a teenager, and is grateful for the Lord’s grace and mercy in her life as she has sought to grow in her relationship with Christ through the years.

She and her husband currently attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and enjoy being a part of the ministries there. Along with being a wife and homemaker, she is thrilled to be able to teach music lessons to a number of piano students in the area. Poetry and meditational or motivational writings based on scripture have also remained one of her passions through the years!
