I thank Jesus Christ our Lord,
He trusted and appointed me;
So I could be in one accord,
Having the insight as to see.
I can do His work with the strength,
The power and might He has given;
To persevere at any length.
Here on earth from up in Heaven.
For in the past my life was grim,
How I acted arrogantly;
Ways I persecuted and cursed Him,
Thinking it was so gallantly.
But I was treated with such grace,
Ignorant in my unbelief;
He still showed mercy to embrace,
Giving me spiritual relief.
Our Lord has been very kind,
A kindness bringing faith to me;
Which has given a peace of mind,
Along with insight for to see.
For the love of Christ shows people,
The mercy and grace that He has;
As is written in the Gospel,
Having the compassion whereas.
He deserves complete acceptance,
And as well as being trusted;
Willing to give you assistance,
For stopping what you have lusted.
For Christ came here to save sinners,
And I am foremost in that part;
But His patience make you winners,
So that you have a change of heart.
I was treated with grace from Christ,
The worst sinner through His patience;
So no longer to be enticed,
Down on my knees giving penance.
Jesus Christ has come here for me,
Worshipped and glorified as King;
Immortal, forever shall be,
To the highest Heaven I sing.
