“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…” 1 Peter 3:15


With abounding joy,

With love in my heart,

With an ever-playing song

Sweet from the start,


With a smile in my eyes,

With awe and admiration,

With a message to share

Of hope and salvation,


With treasures awaiting,

With Heaven on my mind,

With the Spirit bearing fruit

Patient, good and kind,


I live for You, Jesus,

Yes, with all these things;

I marvel the goodness

Your grace ever brings.


You bind the brokenhearted,

You heal those who are ill,

The empty and lonely

With Your Spirit You fill.


So with You and for You

I live all my days,

I offer You all I am

Now and always.


And I invite my brother,

My sister, my friend

To join me in this journey

Of love without end.


For to journey with You

Is to journey in love,

As surely every step

Is kissed by Above.


So with a smile in my eyes,

With awe and admiration,

I will share with all

Your hope and salvation.


Yes, with an ever-playing song

Sweet from the start,

I will live for You, Jesus,

I will live in Your heart.
