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.
Wake up O people of God over every hill and ford,
Wake up and stand for the Lord.
Wake up each child and grown up,
Wake up and God’s Kingdom build up.
Wake up O those in anxiety and deep grief,
Wake up and drive out the faith thief.
Wake up each woman and man,
Wake up and follow God’s plan.
Wake up O sleeper and rise from the dead,
Wake up and Christ will shine over your head.
Wake up for the Lord, each Gentile and Jew,
Wake up and let your praises to God never be few.
Work out your salvation with fear and trembling,
Always have faith to refrain from stumbling.
Guard your heart with much care,
Against all those to deceive you dare.
Work out your salvation not alone,
Be always in the Holy Spirit’s zone.
Ever be vary of apostates vile,
If they your belief revile.
Work out your salvation with cleverness,
Always worshiping God with eagerness.
Your salvation so great is given by God,
Through Christ where no other could trod.
Work out your salvation with quality,
That your conduct never have frivolity.
The Gospel you’ve been given to hold and follow,
So that you walk with Christ beyond each tomorrow.
O Lord keep me away from danger,
From things familiar and stranger.
Keep me O Christ from traps hidden,
And the paths where darkness had ridden.
Turn me away from crookedness,
Let me not delight in wickedness.
Make me not desire timid silence,
Nor let me cherish sinister violence.
Cause me O Lord Jesus to be secure,
And also keep my gaze pure.
Let me not be enticed,
By those you have despised.
By your Holy Spirit cause me to have favour,
In the eyes of others when I rest or labour.
That all creatures benign or deadly,
Refrain from harming me, readily.
Let me be hidden from witchcraft’s eyes,
And from evil spirit’s especially one’s in disguise.
Keep me O Lord always in your grace,
That in your presence I find my place.
Cherish Jesus Christ’s glorious resurrection,
With thanksgiving, praise and affection.
Be glad that death he overcame,
So our life won’t be the same.
Jesus by his resurrection did defeat,
The devil at every throne and seat.
God’s great love is stronger than death,
That Christ for us gave up his spirit and breath.
Jesus Christ on the cross paid the price,
For all our sins, immorality and vice.
And before he died he said, “It is finished”,
He did as prophesied of him, undiminished.
Cherish Jesus Christ’s glorious resurrection,
And daily on it have your reflection.
Know that your life in Christ Jesus is new,
Let your praises to him to be not few.
And at the time of the Day of Judgement’s inspection,
Only those faithful will be reckoned with perfection.
Because in the Gospel and resurrection they’ve believed,
And unto the end they remain undeceived.
Be prayerful and desire the first resurrection,
To be in the Lamb’s Book of Life’s selection.
In which Christ will wipe your tears sad,
So that you remain in his presence ever glad.
Jesus foretold his death and resurrection,
Which put his Apostles in much reflection.
He said this all more than twice,
The disciples found it tough not nice.
Peter didn’t want Jesus Christ our Lord to be crucified,
Yet that was how God in his Son would be glorified.
Spoke the Savior before his solemn sacrifice,
That Peter the future saint would deny him thrice.
When Peter eventually our Lord Jesus for fact deny,
He went out later and truly did bitterly cry.
Only Jesus the eternal king of the Jewish nation,
Could later give repentant Peter spiritual restoration.
Christ the Redeemer at the last supper spoke of his betrayer,
The vile Judas Iscariot who from the true path became a strayer.
Yet this apostate didn’t of his evil heart at all repent,
And by giving up on Jesus ensured where his own afterlife be spent.
And yet didn’t the Son of Man speak of his resurrection?
For God gave him the power to rise up again in divine affection.
Christ Jesus he had to pay everyone’s sin’s full price,
So that those who believe in him get forgiveness and paradise.
Relax in the Lord Jesus,
For he’s the one who sees us.
Cast unto him your burdens and cares,
Be not worried by the world’s dares.
To receive God’s grace do what is just,
Put your faith in the Lord and him do trust.
Never be anxious nor too much you weep,
The Lord feeds the birds who neither sow or reap.
Be not anxious at all for tomorrow,
Surrender to Christ your trouble and sorrow.
Do not worry about what you’ll eat or drink,
Keep first God’s kingdom and his righteousness in all you think.
Fear not the future nor shifting sands,
God has it all covered in his holy hands.
Rest secure in his great love,
As you’re blessed by God from above.
