We Learned This From a Minister

We learned this from a minister who brought us word of you.

You’re faithful, loving, filled with hope, and living fruitful, too.

We pray that you may all be full of knowledge of God’s will;

with wisdom from the Spirit and with understanding filled.

—–

Lead lives as worthy of the Lord, bear fruit and grow to know

the strength you have has come from God so as you outward go

you’re set to stand through everything with patience and in joy.

With God’s bright light you’ll shine as bright as moon and stars on high.

—–

Since God has shown that light to you, be thankful for the gifts,

of rescue from the darkness and of Christ who life uplifts.

We’ve been redeemed, from sin made clean; new life is ours to take.

So sisters, brothers, share with us in joy for Jesus’ sake.
