I consider that suffering,
Is insignificantly compared;
To the glory of buffering,
Will soon to be revealed and shared.
All creation eagerly waits,
For God say who His children are;
When we are walking through the gates,
Each of us holding a bright star.
Creation has been subjected,
To confusion and frustration;
Not by choice being neglected,
Rather did so within the hope.
So it would be also set free,
From slavery that would decay;
If we follow in His decree,
While we honor and obey.
We can share glorious freedom,
That the children of God possess;
Through the Lord and His wisdom,
Giving confidence He will bless.
All creation has groaned with pain,
Of childbirth through present time;
We keep going through stress and strain,
Before starting to make the climb.
We have the Spirit as the first,
Gift from God through the adoption;
Freeing us from the lustful thirst,
That causes rot and corruption.
We are saved with having this hope,
In our minds for what we see;
What we do not see we must cope,
Until the day we are set free.
The Spirit helps our weakness,
Since we do not know how to pray;
But will be able to bless,
When our pleas can never stray.
The one who searches in your heart,
Knows what the Spirit has in mind;
For giving you a brand new start,
While being humble and kind.
