mankind is assured of many things until the very end
we will live, we will die and yes we will commit sin
but true Christians are also assured of many things as well
the love of Christ, eternal life and that they ain't going to hell
but all of that assurance was by Jesus' blood guaranteed
when on the cross He gave His life as a sacrifice for you and me

the sins of mankind that eternal debt of which we've incurred
when Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden didn't obey God's word
we've been on a course of reconciliation to get right with God
but unfortunately a disobedient nature has remained within our hearts
and the only way for us to ever pay back this debt
is to become disciples of Jesus the Christ who is our spiritual rep

Jesus the Christ is our Messiah, our Advocate and our Savior
He lived with us to ascertain the cause of our disobedient behavior
He dwelt among us to teach and to preach to us the gospel truth
His task to instruct us with parables of what God desires we do
blessed assurance our guarantee by Jesus the Christ
blessed assurance as we live this Christian life

living by the word of God to worship Him in truth and light
meditating on the word of God to walk by faith and not by sight
blessed assurance for the debt which Jesus paid
blessed assurance for the living water in which we now wade
Jesus removed all of our fears when from the dead He did arise
it was a display of God's power for us to revere and surmise
that God is all mighty, He's all powerful and God is all good
and we should praise and honor Him as obedient children should

blessed assurance when to Him we draw more nearly 
blessed assurance as we follow His word more clearly
for you're in better hands with God than you would ever be with ALLSTATE
for you are assured, you are insured, you're guaranteed just keep the faith
