To the chosen scattered throughout,
Never fear or have any doubt;
God the Father knew long ago,
Exactly how far you can go.
He chose you to live holy lives,
Because of when Jesus arrives;
You will be taken from the crowd,
In being the first on the cloud.
With His Spirit to render aid,
You do not need to be afraid;
Building up your faith through each day,
Continue to trust and obey.
So no longer to be enticed,
Because the blood of Jesus Christ;
Give good will and peace for your life,
Helping you through toils and strife.
Praise the Father of our Lord,
Never let His Word be ignored;
God has given you a new birth,
As you sojourn on planet earth.
That is for His mercy and grace,
Each one of us He does embrace;
Great mercy with such compassion,
Exceeding all of such fashion.
In a new life we have been born,
With confidence as we sojourn;
Because of Christ we are alive,
Through our faith we do survive.
For Jesus Christ raised from the dead,
The bread of life we are now fed;
With a new life that will not die,
A life that will not cheat or lie.
It is not foul or fade away,
And not cause you to go astray;
You are watched by the power of God,
Ensuring you not to be flawed.
Although you have not seen but heard,
Jesus Christ along with His Word;
You will love and believe in Him,
Bringing you joy never feeling grim.
