As people who know what it means,
To be able to fear the Lord;
We persuade others as it seems,
Latent to be in one accord.
God already knows what we are,
And the person we are to be;
He knows every sinful scar,
Even those that we cannot see.
For we are not trying to show,
Our reservations again;
An opportunity to know,
In showing pride on what has been.
Then you can answer all of those,
Who are proud of their appearance;
Rather than character that shows,
That causes an interference.
Interference makes you crazy,
That causes some to go insane;
And being insanely lazy,
That increases agony and pain.
Remember the love of Christ guides,
With the fact that we are certain;
For everyone that abides,
Lets blessings flow like a fountain.
For all of the people have died,
As Christ died for everyone;
Because Jesus was crucified,
For the love that comes from the Son.
Live not for yourself but for Him,
Was brought back to life for you;
He will keep you from being grim,
If your love remains to be true.
So do not think of anyone,
As from a human point of view;
Rather the view as from the Son,
That you are able to construe.
