I urge you as exiles,
Keep away from desires;
Of those fleshy lifestyles,
That temptation acquires.

They do battle with the soul,
You must maintain good conduct;
With righteousness in control,
How Jesus Christ would instruct.

Let others see your good deeds,
That is glorifying God;
Catering to other needs,
Showing Him honor and laud.

Be subject to laws of man,
Remember God is supreme;
Abiding to what they plan,
For the Lord controls their scheme.

God will punish if done wrong,
And will praise those who do good;
As He will make them headstrong,
If they perform as they should.

Live as free people of God,
Freedom not to do evil;
Rather to honor and laud,
Contrary to the devil.

Love all of the believers,
Fear God and honor the King;
Comfort all who are grievers,
For the hope that God will bring.

Be subject to your masters,
Not just as good and gentle;
Though their plans are disasters,
God gives you an acquittal.

For this God does find favor,
As someone who does endure;
Because Christ is your Savior,
And all evils He will cure.

For to this you have been called,
Since Jesus suffered for you;
As His Spirit cleansed where flawed,
If you are faithful and true.
