Bless be the Father of the Lord,
Granting His great mercy and grace;
And that He is loved and adored,
As He returns with His embrace.
He caused us to be born again,
For He has given a living hope;
Through resurrection had passed then,
From suffering Christ had to cope.
For an inheritance in Heaven,
As undefiled and unfading;
A gift from God that is given,
Of a joy that is elating.
By the power of God guarded,
Through faith for a salvation;
For it cannot be discarded,
Revealing your new creation.
Because of this you can rejoice,
Although for a little while;
You grieve crying out with your voice,
As you grieve throughout each trial.
Genuineness of faith is tested,
For it is more precious than gold;
And that it is not infected,
By temptations that might unfold.
Praise and glory may be found,
Honor for the revelation;
When in hearing the trumpet sound,
Through Christ given your salvation.
Though you may not have ever seen,
But you have believed what is heard;
As in history what has been,
And documented in the Word.
The outcome of faith you obtain,
And the salvation of your soul;
Allows of your faith to retain,
The Holy Spirit to control.
Since the prophets had prophesied,
Searched and inquired of grace;
Foretold about the crucified,
Ascending to the Holy place.
It was revealed through the Gospel,
The Holy Spirit was sent down;
Spreading the news to the people,
Jesus now wears the holy crown.
