DIVINE LIFE JOURNEY

“Life --- commenced by God’s love, with soul quickened through His grace, spirit revived in His strength, faith buttressed upon His truth --- abides forever worshipful.” Poet (Beata B. Agustin)
Guilty, devoid of own righteousness in God’s sight Condemned to hell’s wrath, my soul was transgression-slain Yet, the Lord reached out to me from His lofty height Offering compassion of eternal life gain. Hopelessly perishing, but now redeemed by grace My spirit praises the Saviour with grateful glow Exalting His holy name upon Scriptures' brace While serving in His ministry of blessings’ flow. Receiver of love’s opulence midst pardon seal My heart rejoiced for gift that was sacrifice-priced Such did ransom me from sin torturous ordeal paid sufficiently by the blood of Jesus Christ. I cleave* to the Almighty, upheld by His hand Triumphantly worshipping as His called servant Sharing the Gospel all the way to promised land Awaiting His coming; with prayer, observant. Guilty, devoid of own righteousness in God’s sight Hopelessly perishing, but now redeemed by grace Receiver of love’s opulence midst pardon seal I cleave to the Almighty, upheld by His hand.
*Deuteronomy 30:20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
