Oh friends! Be not discouraged by the Lord.
For all's of Him, in Him. For all's ordained
To show the Glory of the Living Word,
To show the Might and power in Him you've gained.
Your bitterness would steal His Joy from you.
For we're the joyful gift the Lord has given.
If you rent us pain's torment will ensue;
Betrayed yourself, drawn in by false, cold sin.
Our Father always tries our works in fire.
Our works show Faith. Our works show righteousness.
He wants His mighty son in you to aspire
To fly above black clouds and Hell's duress.
For only in the Spirit's Joyful state
Do we overcome the realm of cruel self-hate.
