The One who has spirits and stars,
The seven that belong to God;
Has deleted all of your scars,
If your faith will honor and laud.
For He does know what you have done,
You are known for being alive;
But you are dead until the Son,
Finally returns to revive.
Be alert and strengthen the things,
That are left and about to die;
He has seen what your pleasure brings,
So just leave the sleeping dogs lie.
Think of what you received and heard,
Obey and change the way that you think;
Do daily study in His Word,
No longer take any strong drink.
If you are not staying alert,
He will be coming like a thief;
Then He will be causing you hurt,
Because of your lack of belief.
You do not know the time of day,
It just might be during the night;
And He will smite you since you stray,
Being a disgrace in His sight.
But you do have a few people,
Who have been keeping their clothes clean;
And are studying the Gospel,
Knows exactly what it does mean.
They will walk with robes that are white,
For they are deserving of it;
With a glory that will shine bright,
Because of all their good merit.
God will never erase their names,
Appearing in the Book of Life;
The Lord God Almighty proclaims,
Honor them for enduring strife.
The Father will acknowledge them,
Letting all who have ears to hear;
That the Lord will never condemn,
Those with a confession sincere.
