We know all things work together,
For the welfare of each other;
With those who truly love the Lord,
Being in peace and one accord.
Because the Lord already knew,
By appointing both me and you;
To have the same form as His Son,
Ever since when time had begun.
So His Son being the first born,
That God so loves and does adorn;
Is the firstborn of many clans,
Which was according to His plans.
His glory does is giving grace,
To the ones who happen to face;
The toils and do not reject,
Him as chosen as His elect.
What can I say on all of this,
Never shrug off or to dismiss;
Who is against if God is for,
Knowing in your heart you are sure.
What would restrain us from the love,
That is flowing from God above;
The One who loves us makes us win,
Any victory over sin.
