As people who know what it means,
For having a fear of the Lord;
I try to urge those as it seems,
Tending to let it be ignored.
God already knows what we are,
And hope you also know as well;
For being His own shining star,
At long last in Heaven to dwell.
I want not a pat on the back,
Or consider showing some pride;
Just trying to give those who lack,
The reasons that they must abide.
Then you can answer who are proud,
Having them look in the mirror;
How their arrogance is too loud,
Turned into a sinful error.
So if I appear as crazy,
It is all because of the Lord;
But it shows I am not lazy,
How much He is loved and adored.
I hope you see the love of Christ guides,
I am convinced about that fact;
That everyone who abides,
His life and death has an impact.
So everyone who has died,
Comes back to eternally live;
When Jesus returns for His bride,
Those repented God will forgive.
So from now on we do not think,
Anyone from an earthly view;
We thank God what we eat and drink,
Because the Gospel we construe.
Whoever is a believer,
Is a new creation in Christ;
And has become a receiver,
Of salvation has sacrificed.
Sacrificing of their old way,
How they had lived has disappeared;
No longer will they go astray,
Because Jesus Christ is revered.
