I pray for His Divine power,
To bestow on everything;
Living godliness each hour,
Of the rich knowledge it will bring.
His own glory and excellence,
Of through these things He has bestowed;
And His precious benevolence,
Grows from the seeds that have been sowed.
By the means of what was promised,
You share in the divine nature;
Drawing you to be the closest,
In being as a new creature.
After escaping desire,
Of evil worldly corruption;
You spiritually acquire,
From a heavenly eruption.
Add to your faith through your effort,
The knowledge and the self-control;
Perseverance as to divert,
Corruption away from your soul.
Show all others unselfish love,
Showing brotherly affection;
That is flowing down from above,
Like blood at the crucifixion.
For if these things are within you,
They will continue to increase;
As Jesus Christ you will pursue,
Motivation will never cease.
For whoever lacks will be blind,
He is nearsighted from His sin;
Corruption flows throughout his mind,
For he has not been cleansed within.
Make every drive to be sure,
Of your calling and election;
For cleansing down deep at the core,
Through having a divine selection.
Then fear not and never stumble,
Going back to your former ways;
And no longer will you grumble,
As to be living holy days.
For the entrance to the Kingdom,
To join our Lord and Savior;
Will richly provide His wisdom,
As He looks on you with favor.
