According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:3-5 (ESV)

To Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the promise was given

A great nation, a great name and God’s singular blessing

Through their lives’ triumphs and failures, ever battling sin

With enduring faithfulness and by grace never ending

The Word from the beginning leads us to the only One

Who became a man, the righteous requirement to provide

Through God’s love and mercy, His very own Son

The Promise of The Cross, for our sins He suffered and died

The enemy is now vanquished, my sins are forgiven

My heart’s eyes unblinded to His glory and majesty

Ransomed by The King, Christ Jesus, crucified and risen

By faith alone- let this be my life’s soul legacy
