The Father has given His love,
He thoroughly loves us so much;
As it flows down from up above,
And guided by His gentle touch.
For each of us is His child,
As we are dear children of God;
Treating us tender and mild,
In return we honor and laud.
And that is what we truly are,
Why the world does not recognize;
For the Father has healed the scar,
It is Satan they fraternize.
What we will be is not quite clear,
Keep calm and do not fret about;
Because there is nothing to fear,
No need for to have any doubt.
We do know when Christ does appear,
Each of us will then be like Him;
As that time finally draws near,
He will share His vigor and vim.
So all who have the confidence,
In Jesus will keep themselves pure;
And will change our appearance,
From the life we had to endure.
Those who are living sinful lives,
Are disobedient to God;
Will be ignored when Christ arrives,
Because of being badly flawed.
Those who live in Christ do not sin,
The Father is pleased and does condone;
Sinners are corrupted within,
And Christ they have not seen or known.
Allow nobody to deceive,
Whoever does what God approves;
And their faith does firmly believe,
All iniquities God removes.
The one who lives a sinful life,
Has been possessed by the devil;
As Satan causes them much strife,
Continue acts that are evil.
