Praise the Father of our Lord,
Through Jesus Christ, we have been blest;
While we are in one accord,
God is at peace and is at rest.
Every spiritual blessing,
Of what Heaven has to offer;
Forgiving our transgressing,
But will condemn any scoffer.
Before creation of the earth,
God did choose us through Jesus Christ;
As holy showing our worth,
Not considered as overpriced.
Because of love He decided,
Through Jesus Christ and adopt us;
As His children to be guided,
With the Holy Spirit as thus.
He freely chose so His kindness,
Given onto us in His dear Son;
Would be praised and with blessedness,
Through glory of victory won.
Through blood on the cross of His Son,
We are set free from our sin;
Indicating that the job is done,
So each of us able to win.
God does forgive our failures,
Because His kindness overflows;
Expecting changing behaviors,
As spirituality grows.
Kindness poured with holy wisdom,
And giving heavenly insight;
To see the gates of His Kingdom,
For opening and see the light.
Right now the mystery is sealed,
At the right time Christ will return;
That is when it will be revealed,
And all believers will then learn.
For the truth you heard and believed,
The Good News that He has saved you;
Be happy that you have received,
A salvation given to you.
