Praise the Father of our Lord,
Show to Him that He is adored;
God has given us a new birth,
For His mercy and Grace on earth.
We have been born into new life,
Even though we suffer this strife;
But confidence keeps us alive,
Until Jesus Christ does arrive.
For back to life comes Jesus Christ,
In suffering when sacrificed;
And has inheritance He will give,
For eternal life we can live.
A body that cannot decay,
Nor will it ever fade away;
Not corrupted nor be destroyed,
In Heaven it will be enjoyed.
A new body cannot be flawed,
Guarded by the power of God;
The Book of Life which has been sealed,
Your salvation will be revealed.
For the end of time does draw nigh,
It is when you look at the sky;
And you see Jesus up on a cloud,
Pulling the chosen from the crowd.
You are happy about these things,
Of all that your salvation brings;
Even though you must suffer here,
Hope through faith as the end is near.
Your troubles is a means to test,
For your faith in doing its best;
In seeing the faith in which you hold,
Will show its worth in how much gold.
Your faith is more precious than gold,
As time passes it will unfold;
While you praise and honor God,
Faith will heal where you have been flawed.
