We are sojourners in this place,
That are scattered around the world;
Asking God to pour forth His grace,
Allowing His plan be unfurled.
God the Father knew long ago,
And chose you to live holy lives;
So in you His glory would glow,
While the Holy Spirit thrives.
So you be obedient to Christ,
Be sprinkled with the crimson tide;
Let not for you to be enticed,
By this world so you can abide.
May good will and peace fill your lives,
His grace in you be multiplied;
As we wait for when Christ arrives,
For the marriage feast with His bride.
God has given us a new birth,
Because of His mercy and grace;
The Father knows of your true worth,
Has the compassion to embrace.
We have been born in a new life,
Having confidence to survive;
Able to cope with all the strife,
Keeps hope in Jesus Christ alive.
In a new life we have been born,
In which has an inheritance;
As we continue to sojourn,
Here building our confidence.
It can never be corrupted,
Neither razed nor faded away;
Continuous not disrupted,
Will never allow you to stray.
The inheritance in Heaven,
And is guarded by our Lord;
Through the salvation as given,
To be revealed never ignored.
Although that you have never seen,
That Christ is loved and adored;
As He has and as He has been,
Remembering Jesus is Lord.
