Praise be to the God and the Father,
Of our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior;
And also to be known as our Brother,
Blessing us in the Spirit forever more.
Even as He has selected us in Him,
So that we might be holy and free;
From the evil that makes life grim,
Rather enlightened by Him to see.
We were to be sons and daughters,
In the good pleasure of His intent;
Cleansed of sin by spiritual waters,
After we admit to them and repent.
The glory of His grace that He gave,
Our salvation in the blood of Christ;
In order to raise us from the grave,
Because of His Son was sacrificed.
Now given full measure of wisdom,
In His secrets having been unsealed;
With joining Him in His Kingdom,
In due time when all will be revealed.
