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
