Here is my best explanation:

'faith' is the definition.
('trust' can be a synonym of 'faith')

'decay after time' is the wordplay.
'decay' becomes 'rust' (rusting is a kind of decaying**).
'after' says to put letters next to each other.
'time' becomes 't'.
'rust' after 't' is 'TRUST'.

'to' is the link.
