Trust Jesus

We were once stupid maybe still,
Disobedient and misled;
And having a free flowing will;
That could make us wind up as dead.

We were slaves to a lot of lust,
Most time spent on earthly pleasures;
Lincoln and Grant upheld my trust.
And provided me with treasures.

We were mean and also jealous,
Envying those better than we;
Addictive and overzealous,
To the latest that we could see.

We were hated as much as them,
Always trying to outdo us;
And wishing that God would condemn,
Every time we made a fuss.

The kindness of God our Savior,
As His love toward humans appeared;
He looked upon us with favor,
Even though He was not revered.

Through His mercy we have been saved,
Washed in which the Holy Spirit,
Freed us from the things that enslaved,
No regards to our merit.

He gives us new birth and renewal,
That God poured out a large measure;
Of His Spirit being like His jewel,
And considered to be His treasure.

So through Jesus Christ our Savior,
God gives approval with kindness;
Looking upon us with favor,
Showering us with blessedness.

We have become heirs with confidence,
That we have everlasting life;
As we love through obedience,
And He will help us through the strife.
