Adhere to the counsel of God

God has clearly instructed us to love not the world
For all that is in the world
The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life
Is not of the father, but of the world
therefore be not conformed to this world,
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind
that ye may prove the perfect will of God

that same God of mercy who so loved the world
and demonstrated by his actions a love so bold
Because He gave up His only begotten son, His only begotten son
And it was not in exchange for a ton
But that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life

Haven’t you heard?
There is wonder working power in the blood
Yes, Power in the blood
The blood of Christ the lamb has been spill and sprinkled all over the mercy seat
Jesus Christ was scarified for the world
That’s for you, for me and all those untold
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saves a wretch like me

Jesus Christ clothed his divinity with humanity
He gave up his heavenly, majestic paradise
So he could pay for us the ultimate price
On that cross he carried our shame, he took our sins and bore our guilt
Now by this we know that salvation to all is but a free gift

You have been cordially invited to heavenly worlds above
Where sweet melody echoes like the voice of a dove
With pearly gates and streets of gold
And lots of surprises to behold
And there shall be no more night there
No more cancer, no more pain, no more tears
‘Et tun sa, La paki ne pwes voleh avec pwes situears’
For the former things have passed away

Even so Lord come quickly,
This is our fervent plea
For we know, that the time is close at hand for which we watch and wait
We have caught a glimpse of glory and we’re longing to translate
I have fixed my mind on another time
On a bigger, better, brighter immortal world.
