I bow my knees for the Father,
Of each family in Heaven;
Through Jesus Christ our Brother,
Here on earth His name is given.
That according to the riches,
Of that He would be granting you;
Strengthened power that He wishes,
Through His Spirit to continue.
Your inner self by His Spirit,
That allows Jesus as to dwell;
Putting your heart into your merit,
Never letting faith to rebel.
Because you are being rooted,
As it remains grounded in love;
Allows you to be surefooted,
And being nourished from above.
May you have strength to comprehend,
With all the saints for dimensions;
Although some people will offend,
And be causing altercations.
But in knowing the love of Christ,
Surpassing knowledge and wisdom;
The reason He was sacrificed,
So, He could reign in His Kingdom.
To do far more abundantly,
Than all that we can think or ask;
Eagerly not reluctantly,
No matter what may be the task.
According to the faith in us,
With the power at work within;
Conduct fulfilled to God as thus,
Giving a path avoiding sin.
To Him be glory in the church,
And in Christ Jesus throughout all;
With the generations of their search,
Rescuing them before they fall.
