Praise the Father of our Lord,
Our Savior who is adored;
Through Jesus Christ that God has blest,
Spiritual blessings if confessed.
Before creation of this place,
God had chosen us by His grace;
Through Jesus Christ to be holy,
As children His one and only.
Because of having such a love,
That constantly flows from above;
He had decided to accept,
Us as a family concept.
For the Father had freely chose,
Of the loving kindness He knows;
He had given through His dear Son,
Praise and glory that has begun.
Because of the blood of His Son,
We know victory has been won;
Being set free from our sin,
And by means for cleansing within.
God forgives every failure,
Of Christ being our Savior;
For His overflowing kindness,
In curing spiritual blindness.
He poured His kindness by giving,
So we have spiritual living;
For guiding us into the light,
Applying wisdom and insight.
Going back into history,
When He revealed the mystery;
In knowing what was sacrificed,
He decided in doing through Christ.
To bring history to its goal,
Through Jesus in saving your soul;
And head of both Heaven and earth,
As Christ will give us a new birth.
You heard and believed in the Gospel,
What Jesus said to the people;
And in what you will inherit,
As sealed by the Holy Spirit.
