Pay attention to those who live,
Imitate them by example;
Learning just how you should forgive,
Just like Jesus and His Gospel.
Be imitators just like me,
So you will be able to talk;
Having the insight how to see,
The way He has shown you to walk.
How many times have I told you?
Now saying with tears in my eyes;
As Satan already does know,
How enemies are telling lies.
Many live as foes of the cross,
Where Christ hung on while He bled;
For our gain was from His loss,
Bringing about glory instead.
In the end they shall be destroyed,
As their fate sees an inferno;
And no longer can they avoid,
Into perdition where they go.
The righteous enabled to proclaim,
Since foes took pride in shameful things;
Because of glory in their shame,
In what an earthly pleasure brings.
The worldly things they set their minds,
Most of which have immoral ways;
A motive that addiction finds,
One who is gullible that strays.
We are citizens of Heaven,
In the heavenly commonwealth;
The salvation we are given,
A wonderful spiritual health.
We look forward unto that day,
When Lord Jesus our Savior;
Has come back down so we can stay,
And blessing us with His favor.
His power brings everything,
Changing us from humble to glorified;
And stay with the heavenly King,
For being like the crucified.
