I thank God for the memories,
That I had been having with you;
Though many were iniquities,
My confession unstuck their glue.
Every time I pray for you,
I do as a joyous request;
To change the way that you pursue,
And be able to do your best.
I do for the relationship,
With you that we have established;
Not letting our feelings slip,
For the Gospel not relinquished.
From the first day you have believed,
And am convinced because of God;
As His Spirit you have received,
To cleanse you where you have been flawed.
You will have a place in my heart,
And it is right for me to think;
How I had urged you from the start,
For taking the spiritual drink.
Together we share His favor,
While defending to confirm;
That Jesus is our Savior,
And our faith is not short-term.
God has witnessed my compassion,
For our Savior Jesus Christ;
It freely pours not to ration,
How much we both have sacrificed.
I pray that your love may abound,
Growing in knowledge and insight;
Guiding you that it may be found,
Deeper into the righteous light.
Then determine what is the best,
Pure and blameless until that day;
When God shows what He did invest,
With a path for coming His way
