I am thankful unto the Lord,
Whom I serve with a clear conscience;
Knowing my requests not ignored,
For He has been my best defense.
Remembering all of the tears,
Because I am longing to see;
Being filled with joy many years,
Where I have been longing to be.
Your faith is sincere I recall,
The Holy Spirit is in you;
Because your belief to enthrall,
Knowing that the Gospel is true.
Wherefore I do want to remind,
You rekindle the gift from God;
While being humble and kind,
Continue to honor and laud.
The gift is laying of the hands,
God gave not a Spirt of fear;
Rather of power love demands,
A self-control you must revere.
Be not ashamed to testify,
About our Lord for His sake;
Share the Gospel never deny,
No matter what is at stake.
He is the One who has saved us,
Called on us a holy calling;
Not based on our works as thus,
Rather stopping us up from falling,
For His own purpose and His grace,
Granted through Christ since time began;
With open arms waits to embrace,
Of every woman and man.
Appearing as our Savior,
Giving us immortality;
His glory shining His favor,
Fading our iniquity.
Protect what is given to you,
The Holy Spirit lives within;
By remaining faithful and true,
And avoiding the earthly sin.
