Let the light of Christ shine in you O believer,
That of good works you be an achiever.
So people who know of your life story,
May get inspired to give your Heavenly Father glory.
Bear witness for Christ Jesus to everyone,
And be ready to defend the cause of your hope to anyone.
For this you must honor the Lord God as holy,
And study his Word with eagerness wholly.
Don’t fear to bear witness to what Christ has spoken,
Let your courage be stronger that wood that’s oaken.
And be of good taste like salt,
Stay clear of each sinful fault.
Do as Jesus commanded; preach and baptize,
Each one you help disciple and make wise.
Do this in the name of the Holy Trinity divine,
That each worthily partake of Christ’s bread and wine.
Read the Gospel and it believe,
Lest the Devil does deceive.
Read the Gospel prayerfully,
That you serve God cheerfully.
Read the Gospel with relish,
Don’t be like those who perish.
Read the Gospel to get wise,
That things infernal you despise.
Read the Gospel to grow,
And all foolishness to throw.
Read the Gospel to abide,
And in God’s will reside.
Read the Gospel to act,
That you do right in fact.
Read the Gospel to meditate,
That you in truth Christ imitate.
