The Essence of Existence
Thus what is the true worth of
The travails of human existence …
Nought, but the ultimate inheritance
Of the blessed assurance of everlasting life
Through the perfect and absolute
Redemption of our Lord, Jesus Christ
Without which, no real value is added
To the fragility of this mortality.
Seek ye eternal salvation.
Almighty God of all the earth
Thy wonders ceaseth not.
In all thy majesty I pray
Ye hear me when I call.
Forgive me all my sins my Lord.
Forgive me all I’ve done.
Please wash me with the blood of Christ
And sanctify my soul.
I struggle deep with the pains of life.
I wrestle in my faith, but do believe, and
Still hold firmly within my frame
That Christ saves, and will come again.
Empower me with thy strength, oh God.
Embrace me fully in thy love,
That when the strife of life doth come
Within thy grace, I’ll always walk.
And at last, when that fated Rubicon I cross,
When in awe, thy blessed face I see
That I’ll sing on high with all thy saints
Thank God, earth’s life wasn’t in vain.
