You are the child that God loves,
For living in the love as Christ;
Spread your arms as wings as the doves,
Beyond from becoming enticed.
An offering and sacrifice,
A soothing aroma to God;
For His life Christ had paid the price,
As payment for where we are flawed.
Such a sweet scent of aroma,
Nothing like the immoral stench;
Sin is like a carcinoma,
That sinful corruption will clench.
Do not let perversion or greed,
Not allow the immoral seed,
That would keep you from your Savior.
It is not right for foolish talk,
Dirty stories or obscene jokes;
The dark alleys where you may walk,
Building up fires that one stokes.
It is best to give thanks to God,
Avoid those who live in the night;
Worshipping with honor and laud,
Remain living within the light.
No one involved in sexual sin,
Or with worshipping in their wealth;
Unable to enter within,
For inheriting with poor health.
Do not let anyone deceive,
Yourself with such meaningless words;
You know the truth what to believe,
Considering all else for the birds.
Because of sin God is angry,
For the ones who do not obey;
Because they will never agree,
For stopping from going astray.
Wake up sleeper, rise from the dead,
Start to move away from the dark;
Let Jesus shine on you instead,
In the light you need to embark
