I thank my God in remembrance,
About you in every prayer;
Having all of your endurance,
Showing how much you really care.
Always every prayer of mine,
Making all of my prayers with joy;
How the glory making you shine,
On your efforts that you employ.
Your partnership in the Gospel,
From the first day up until now;
Preaching it out to the people,
And of what the Lord will endow.
Being confident of this thing,
The good work from who has begun;
Of the performance what would bring,
Until the day brought by the Son.
It is right for to feel this way,
Even as it is meet for to think;
I hold in my heart to obey,
Through the blood of Jesus I drink.
For we are partakers of grace,
In defense and confirmation;
Through the Gospel that I embrace,
Preaching with my affirmation.
Because God remains my witness,
How I yearn for the affection;
Inspiring spiritual fitness,
Able to show my reflection.
It is my prayer about your love,
In knowledge and all discernment;
About what flows down from above,
Knowing God is fair in judgment.
You may approve as excellent,
Things that are as pure and blameless;
Remain sincere and vigilant,
That maintains to remain shameless.
Because the fruit of righteousness,
Being fulfilled from Jesus Christ;
Glory in heart and consciousness,
Praising the Lord becomes enticed.
