All that was written long ago,
Was written to teach that we;
Would have the confidence to grow,
And the encouragement to see.
To endure what Scriptures have given,
Letting us live in harmony;
And bring down a piece of Heaven,
Just like a pleasant symphony.
Harmony with one another,
Following the model of Christ;
Treating others like a brother,
Not letting yourself be enticed.
Remember to have the same goal,
While praising God the Father;
As His Spirit enters your soul,
So you can call Christ your Brother.
Therefore accept one another,
The way that Jesus accepts you;
And always loving each other,
While being faithful and true.
Christ brought us the glory of God,
As a servant to the people;
For showing us how we are flawed,
By delivering the Gospel.
He was not rude or as uncouth,
But a relationship to build;
So that God could reveal the truth,
And His promise could be fulfilled.
Anyone who is not a Jew,
Can praise God for mercy as well;
So life after death can come true,
And in Heaven they can go dwell.
That is why I am giving thanks,
To the Lord of all the kingdoms,
And more worth than in all the banks,
Better than all other freedoms.
May the Lord be your source of hope,
Filling you with the joy and the peace;
With abundant power to cope,
So that your faith will never cease.
