By the Word a believer knows, through obedience a heart grows,
In Godís Word weíre implored, submit to all over us, in The Lord,
Weíre to esteem leaders in love, led by Godís Spirit from above,
This, to be at peace with others; growing as sisters and brothers.
Being one body, with one voice, with our leaders, always rejoice;
Without ceasing we must pray, as together we follow Godís way,
Giving thanks through everything, as we serve our Lord and King,
Never quenching the Holy Spirit, but, obeying Truth, as we hear it.
Despise not prophecies we know, but, in His Truth we must grow,
Testing things, that weíve heard, against the Truth of Godís Word;
Abstaining from all the evil we see, with our eyes fixed on eternity,
Always obeying The Spirit of God, per His Plan, wherever we trod,
As we follow Godís Word fully, we must warn men, who are unruly,
Comforting the fainthearted in Christ, as we live for Him a holy life,
Weíre never to repay evil for evil, as Godís Plan, together we fulfill,
As we encourage a weaker brother, pursuing good for one another.
Looking to the coming of Christ, may The Lord, sanctify all our life,
May we lean on Godís faithfulness, to preserve us, fully blameless,
As we look for The Lordís Return, may we obey the Truths we learn,
So that as a body, we truly heed, obedient to all the Truths we read.
