Jesus Christ came as a light into the world,
All who believe the truth shall be unfurled;
You shall not abide in darkness that hears,
And believes in the Word will dispel fears;
Christ did not come to judge rather to save,
For believers shall be free from the grave;
In rejecting Christ, also rejects His Word,
For the Day of Judgment you will be heard;
It's not of Christ but the Father, who sent,
To admit guilt of all your sins and repent;
For life everlasting is His commandment,
With everyone who receives atonement.
I am not one to talk of gloom and doom,
But are marked since leaving the womb;
That we can not help in being tempted,
By the sinful diseases we are infected;
Easily persuaded each way you turn,
Suggestive luring of desires to yearn;
You are not strong, can not do alone,
God is waiting to help you and atone.
