We can see that divine power,
Has given us everything;
Every day of each hour,
Delightful blessings it brings.
All that we need for godliness,
For our lives in all we pray;
Knowing that God will always bless,
When we always trust and obey.
For this power has been given,
Through our knowledge of the One;
By His own glory in Heaven,
From the Father and through the Son.
It was through His integrity,
He has given through His promise;
And has taken the liberty,
Forgiving in what we confess.
Through His promise we all can share,
The divine nature to escape;
The corruption of sin through prayer,
Desires that constantly rape.
Raping us of mercy and grace,
Robbing of our self-control;
Which blocks us from His sweet embrace,
Letting Satan enter the soul.
Make every effort to add,
Integrity in your endurance;
Resist anything that is bad,
As you boost your perseverance.
For godliness brings affection,
That the Christian will then know love;
Giving you a new direction,
For following Jesus thereof.
If you have type of quality,
Then they will soon be increasing;
Your knowledge takes the liberty,
For praising Christ never ceasing.
If not then you are shortsighted,
You have forgotten being pure;
Your pathway no longer lighted,
As old sins tempt you with a lure.
