I am speaking the truth in Christ,
Not lying what I testify;
The reason He was sacrificed,
No one is able to deny.
It is through the Holy Spirit,
That I have an intense sorrow;
Anguishing within my merit,
Looking for hope for tomorrow.
I could nearly wish to be cursed,
Be cut off from the Redeemer;
For those who do hunger and thirst,
Since I am called a blasphemer.
Messiah is for my brothers,
The benefit of flesh and blood;
The sacrifice many others,
That bought them with the crimson flood.
To them belong the adoption,
The glory and the covenants;
For the Law is not an option,
Rather the utmost importance.
The ancestors are theirs from them,
Physical descent of Christ;
From the Father not to condemn,
Rather for us to be enticed.
But the Word of God has not failed,
Not all the descendants are Jew;
Because the Father has prevailed,
For the disciples still pursue.
Because your offspring will be traced,
Not as physical descendants;
Instead it shall become erased,
To become holy dependents.
Not children of physical kin,
But adopted through the assured;
Children that were born out of sin,
Blessings and forgiveness has poured.
When a promise had been received,
Though the children have yet been born;
A promised gift to be conceived,
God elected them to sojourn.
Anything as done good or bad,
The purpose of God that will stand;
Regardless as happy or sad,
We must honor of each command.
