I’m in a place by gift of grace and wish the same to you.
With mercy, peace and more like these from our Lord Jesus, too.
Both night and day I always pray in thanks for your deep faith.
You, child of faithful women who exemplify the way.
Remember love and discipline, these powers that are yours,
and stir them up to testify for Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Like me, you have a holy call to manifest God’s grace
through which death ends and life unending shines our onward way.
For this I was appointed an apostle and was sent.
For this I suffer unashamed. On Jesus I depend.
And you, beloved student in the faith of Jesus Christ,
Guard what you’ve been entrusted as the Spirit gives you life.
