I am so happy to suffer,
For everyone of you now;
Because of my faith will buffer,
Whatever God will disallow.
In my body I will complete,
Whatever that maybe remains;
To bear what Christ did not defeat,
And continue where my faith gains.
I am doing this for His sake,
Of His body which is the church;
Staying vigilant and awake,
As I am extending my search.
I am a servant for the church,
Since God has given me a chore;
Through the Scriptures I will research,
For the key to open the door.
So I can tell you the whole message,
Not just a small portion of it;
So you are given free passage,
Through your belief and your merit.
The past had hid this mystery,
But at last it has been revealed;
And can go back in history,
For reviewing what has been sealed.
God wanted all of us to know,
All of the glorious treasures;
Which the living Jesus can show,
Giving you hope through His pleasures.
I spread the message about Christ,
To train and teach everyone;
On how we must be sacrificed,
With all the wisdom of the Son.
So I work hard, struggle to do,
While His power works on me;
For telling you all that is true,
With His insight so I can see.
