God is rich in mercy with His great love,
Even in being dead in earthly sin thereof;
By His grace through Christ we are saved,
From the clutches of Satan who enslaved;
Raising us up to sit in a Heavenly place,
In gazing at Jesus Christ seeing His face;
We are saved through our faith as a gift,
That will spark your spirit for to uplift;
This is not works lest you shall boast,
As a craftsmanship of the Heavenly Host;
Created in Jesus Christ in the aftermath,
For to be ordained as we walk in His path.
God in His mercy still feels we are worth,
Saving all of us and also the planet Earth;
Give chance to straighten up and fly right,
Walking in the path of truth and the light;
As you continue the work of God right here,
Through your leisure and also your career;
And recognize as the opportunities arrive,
For keeping our faith and our hope alive.
