We know all things work together,
For the good of those who gather;
Those whom God has called to His plan,
Offering to each woman and man.
So true since He knows His people,
Who has read or not the Gospel;
Appointed them to have the same,
In form as His Son to proclaim.
His Son is firstborn of many,
Superior over any;
Approved of those whom He has called,
That has been cleansed where they were flawed.
What can I truly say about,
Keeping you from having some doubt;
If God is for us what we are,
Who can be against from afar.
God did not spare His only Son,
From a new life that has begun;
Rather delivered Him to death,
On the cross to breathe His last breath.
He will give us everything,
Along with Him what it will bring;
Those who God chose who will accuse,
Since His Son has paid our dues.
Because God has approved of them,
Who would really ever condemn;
For Jesus was brought back to life,
Giving us hope beyond the strife.
For us Christ also intercedes,
Cleansing our sins where He bleeds;
From the highest place in Heaven,
What the salvation has given.
No greater privilege to share,
Having a partner in your prayer;
Does not separate us from Christ,
And why Jesus was sacrificed.
Nothing can separate us from love,
As it flows from Heaven above;
I am convinced powers to be,
Works through the prayers that came from me.
