Awesome Certainty

From John 3:14-17:  “And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life.  For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life.  Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.”

Holy God of Abraham and Sarah

His Tree of Life blesses generations

Throughout Creation’s awesome certainty

Into Christ’s death, reborn as new nations


When rising with each new, precious morning

Blessed by our Father’s love, mercy, and grace

Witnessing His divine truth, now spoken

Passing on to each act and word we place


Walking as His body, the Son of Man

Sanctified through His sacrificial blood

Christ leads, encouraging all to follow

Life streaming to pristine sea, free of mud


Broken lives, breathing as imperfections

Life’s daily missteps, forever stumbling

Christ’s forgiveness showers each soul with love

Pardoning sinners, no longer tumbling


Grace-filled Holy Spirit moves within us

Offering necessary strength and hope

Fueling deep faith, God’s awesome certainty

Go forth, blessed and ready, walk life’s tightrope
