You were once dead because of sin,
And because of all your failure;
But now you are able to win,
All because you have a savior.
You followed the ways of this place,
And of its spiritual ruler;
Has been causing such a disgrace,
Deceptive talk as a fooler.
He continues to work through people,
Who refuses to obey God;
Does not acknowledge the Gospel,
He will never honor and laud.
All of us have lived amongst them,
Desiring a corrupt nature;
Because of their thoughts will condemn,
Never to be a new creature.
We are deserving of His wrath,
Since He is rich in mercy and grace;
If we walk the straight and slim path,
And following Him at His pace.
Remaining together through Christ,
For together He has given;
If we are not being enticed,
By something other than Heaven.
Out of His generosity,
Showing extreme kindness for here;
Having such virtuosity,
By the time Christ will reappear.
Through your own faith God has saved you,
Because of an act of kindness;
You have nothing need to pursue,
Curing coming from the blindness.
For a gift from God that has saved,
Resulting not from you have done;
No longer that sin has enslaved,
Since sin has been paid by the Son.
God has made us for what we are,
Creating us for living lives;
Each of us as a shining star,
Waiting for when Jesus arrives.
