How do we know my dear friend

Whether we are really saved?

It’s not written in the palm of our hand

Or how good we have behaved.

It isn’t laden in our talk

Or in our gentle manner;

Not even in our eloquence

Or by raising the Lord’s banner.

Not even as we come to church

To sing sweet melodies;

Or praying to Almighty God

As we bend our feeble knees.

It’s a burning passion deep inside

As Jesus is engraved;

In our heart and soul forevermore

Confirming we are saved.

By confessing with our mouth

And believing with our heart,

That Jesus died and rose again

We make a brand new start.

Let’s not deceive ourselves again

But know the awesome truth;

To burn with zeal to serve our Lord

While our days are in their youth.

“Set your mind on things above…for you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”  Colossians 3:2-3

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”  Romans 10:9-10
