When you are called the favored of the Lord,
Do be prepared, He'll never let you go.
Not yours will be His judgement as a sword,
Yet heartfelt thoughts of others you can know.
When laboring to enter in His rest,
Remember it is meant for you each day.
He may allow you persecution's test,
But Jesus overcame so that you may.
Salvation isn't here sometimes then gone,
Today is Jesus' day; rejoice, be glad!
His Spirit can do more than might or brawn,
In robes of righteousness, you can be clad.
Abiding in the secret place of God,
The love of Christ will overflow your soul.
Not yours will be His punishment by rod,
For pleasing Jesus is your only goal.
