The Father has given His love,
Because He does love us so much;
Floats down on the wings of a dove,
As it gives us His gentle touch.
So each of us is His child,
As precisely as what we are;
Considered tender and mild,
Each of us as a shining star.
But the world does not recognize,
And will not acknowledge either;
Our God with wisdom so wise,
As being omniscient neither.
So it is not completely clear,
But this we actually do know;
As to when Jesus does appear,
The resemblance of us will show.
So all of us with confidence,
Continue to keep themselves pure;
To God having obedience,
With sinful corruption no more.
Those who still live a sinful life,
Are disobedient to God;
He will give them His wrathful strife,
Because of being badly flawed.
Christ appeared to take away sin,
Those who live in Christ are winning;
Since they are purified within,
For they have given up sinning.
Never let anyone deceive,
If you confess God will approve;
And in Jesus you do believe,
All the flaws God will remove.
The person who lives in the sin,
His life belongs to the devil;
And remains corrupted within,
And being controlled by evil.
All those who have been born of God,
No longer live in sinful lives;
As long as they become not flawed,
They will go when Jesus arrives.
