To Him Be True

In life and in death,
live unto the Lord;
endure all that comes,
stay in one accord.
If we are faithful,
with Him we will reign;
if we disown Him,
life will end in shame.
Though when we’re weary,
when faith has run out;
He remains faithful,
to self He’s devout.
May we do our best,
present selves approved,
no shame found in Him,
He shall not be moved.
God’s firm foundation,
will ever stay true;
He knows who are His,
shows us what to do.
Be cleansed from all sin,
confess to the Lord;
He forgives and loves,
His grace He’ll afford.

(Responding to 2 Timothy 2:11-21)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we give our lives to You, You come near and are faithful forever. Thank You that Your faithfulness is not dependant on whether or not we do “enough”, but You are true to Your Spirit who dwells within all who choose to trust in You. Forgive us for the times that our faith seems fickle, and grant us Your steadfastness, to forever remain in You. Equip and empower us to always do our best unto You, and may many see You in us, and desire Your light and love that dwells within. Lead the lost unto Yourself, and use us as Your instruments to pass on Your peace that surpasses all understanding. Amen.
