Eternal Life


 


God used his Holy Spirit


His son, to inherit


Life again; Eternal life


 


For the world, for our sins


At Calvary’s cross, victory begins


He rose again too; Eternal life


 


In baptism we die with Him


Trusting in God, we rise with Him


To new life; Eternal life


 


Christ rose from the dead


Never to die again, it is said


To the glory of Eternal life


 


Freed through God’s grace


No longer the slavery of sin to face


Ours a life of freedom; Eternal life


 


Not guilty is our sentence 


Freed to a life in obedience


God is in control; in Eternal life


 


A life of choice


Choosing to obey God's voice


To gain His approval; to Eternal life


 


To righteousness bonded


Under the yoke of sin not laden


A holy life; Eternal life


 


Refusing the process of eternal doom


Accepting rewards nought of gloom


The free gift of God; Eternal life
