A Living Hope
Bless be the Father of the Lord,
According to His great mercy;
Which is magnified and adored,
Marveling all of which we see.
He caused us to be born again,
Hope living through resurrection;
Of Jesus Christ that death had been,
Giving us a new direction.
An undefiled inheritance,
Unfaded and eternally;
For heavenly inhabitance,
Fitted for us spiritually.
By the power of God guarded,
Through faith unto your salvation;
Once in Heaven are rewarded,
Giving you a firm foundation.
You rejoice for a little while,
Since you grieved through many trials;
Temptations try to defile,
Into immoral lifestyles.
For your faith is being tested,
About your heart true desire;
To assure as not infested,
With impurities of fire.
It is more precious than the gold,
That perishes within the test;
But as the results that unfold,
As you are winning in the quest.
It may be found as a result,
Praise, glory and honor;
For worshipping and to exalt,
Enabled to be a fawner.
Even though you have not seen Him,
You love Him because He is here;
So, you believe not feeling grim,
Knowing you have nothing to fear.
The outcome of your faith obtains,
Salvation that is for your soul;
When the Holy Spirit maintains,
Allowed to have complete control.
