You have heard the way that the Lord,
Gave me responsibility;
For showing how He is adored,
And merciful benignity.
You have heard that He let me know,
The secret of revelation;
With all that He did have to show,
For acquiring salvation.
For I have already written,
About this all before briefly;
That your past has been forgiven,
While confessing sincerely.
You will see that I understand,
Of the mystery about Christ;
And to what the Father had planned,
After His Son was sacrificed.
This mystery has not been known,
By the people up until now;
And has been seated on His throne,
In Heaven where God did endow.
The Holy Spirit has revealed,
To His apostles and prophets;
The Book of Life that has been sealed,
Salvation is more than merits.
Salvation is not what was done,
To inherit from the Good News;
But honor the Father and Son,
For Gentiles not just the Jews.
The same body we all belong,
Sharing the promise made through Christ;
This is why we must get along,
Not letting rage to be enticed.
I am a servant for Good News,
The kindness His will has given;
His power has helped me to choose,
Reserving my place in Heaven.
I am the least of His people,
Yet God has shown me His kindness;
As I proceed to stay humble,
I profess through His blessedness.
