Encouragement is something
I hope I’m giving to you,
And encouragement is something
You can give to others, too.
There’s encouragement in Jesus,
He died so we could be forgiven;
And wonderful news! All who accept Him
Will see Him and will go to Heaven.
Without forgiveness we are lost,
During this one lifetime: we choose —
Will we believe in God before it’s too late?
Salvation will be welcome news.
Now, through life’s aggravations,
Challenges we face everyday;
The LORD empowers us to
Overcome when we obey.
So, think it over by yourself
Carefully, in a quiet way;
See if you find this peace of mind
and celebrate your faith today.
