ALL IN ALL …. 1 PETER 1:4-9

I am a child of the king, He is life and light and LORD, filling me with His glory
Guiding me towards life, people count, He has already made a place for me in heaven

Right now my place is here, I am just passing through, what I do to whom and how counts
God the righteous judge, His mercy immeasurable, provides my living hope

Jesus keeps me alive, He quickens my spirit, building my faith
This supports me as I face each day, this living hope conducts me through life to heaven

My inheritance is now, as effective in life as it is in heaven, imperishable
In Christ it will not fade, it does not diminish, it is reserved by Jesus for you

This inheritance is the sum total of all that God has promised us in Salvation
A glory greater than we can imagine, a life so amazing that it is effective right now

Every day is a good day, nothing can overcome us, God is in control
Circumstances will not deter us, trials are real but Jesus overcomes, they result in praise to the Father

Faith in God protects us, His power overcomes the world, He is Lord
We do not see Him, yet we love Him and believe in Him, resulting in the salvation of our souls
