If you abide in Christ and His Words in you,
Ask for whatever and desires shall accrue;
God to be glorified so you bear much fruit,
Be Disciples of Christ and to pay tribute;
Even as God loved Christ, He loved you,
Abide in His love and to His word be true.
As being one in Christ we keep His Word,
Now why should it be to some so absurd;
If we expect a reward we must profess,
Also living by the Word and to confess;
Our beliefs must be known in our heart,
Ensuring others are advised as to impart;
Ask for your needs and you shall receive,
But you have to prove that you believe;
Showing to God really just how sincere,
Worship Him with your heart and fear;
Confess your heart and give Him love,
Returning favor of blessings from above;
You will bear much fruit all you desire,
There will be a new you to transpire.
