When you know the fear of the Lord,
You attempt to persuade others;
Just how Christ is loved and adored,
Trying to make them your brothers.
God already knows what we are,
I hope that you also know too;
And no longer have that scar,
From when you were not telling true.
I am not about to go brag,
Attempting to show off my pride;
Being conceited is a drag,
For someone humbled bona fide.
If I happened to be crazy,
It will be always for the Lord;
Because I cannot be lazy,
Or allow Him to be ignored.
If I appear in being sane,
Then it is all because of you;
Since Jesus did not die in vain,
Knowing that the Gospel is true.
Clearly, the love of Christ does guide,
For I am convinced of the fact;
Because of one man that had died,
Shows that the Gospel is exact.
He died so that those who do live,
Live for Christ who came back to life;
And so through Him God will forgive,
In giving hope beyond the strife.
I no longer think of someone,
Within a human point of view;
Just in the concept of the Son,
Seeing the light in what is true.
Whoever is a believer,
Through Christ is a new creation;
Shall also be a receiver,
Guaranteed having salvation.
The old way of living disappeared,
While a new way now exists;
In my life Christ has been revered,
Since my name the Book of Life lists.
