I thank Jesus who gives me strength,
Our Lord who is faithful and just;
For persevering at any length,
Against the temptation and lust.
For I had been a blasphemer,
Persecutor and opponent;
Never thought as a redeemer,
And Son of the Omnipotent.
But His mercy I did receive,
For my ignorant unbelief;
The salvation for I believe,
Giving a spiritual relief.
The grace of the Lord overflows,
For faith and love that are in Christ;
Because of the fact that He knows,
If earthly pleasures have enticed.
For the saying is trustworthy,
Deserving of full acceptance;
Easy to follow His decree,
To remain in His compliance.
Jesus came to save the sinners,
Of whom I am of the foremost;
For making us all as winners,
As part of the heavenly host.
I received mercy and His grace,
Displaying His perfect patience;
As I sojourn within this place,
And has told me through my conscience.
To the King of all the ages,
The God of glory and honor;
Who is slow to wrath and rages,
Has been guiding me a fawner.
For this charge that I do entrust,
In accordance with prophecy;
The warfare that battles the lust,
The Lord will give insight to see.
Holding faith and a good conscience,
Learning not to blaspheme the Lord;
Keep His spiritual acceptance,
For remaining in one accord.
