Purity of Life


Oh, Christian friend, let us seek to live
A life of purity –
Hearts filled with love, ready to forgive…
In light of Calvary.
As perils of darkness surround us,
Many are without sight;
Souls are suffering all around us…
Oh, let us shine God’s Light…
Through Purity of Life.

Sin is so rampant throughout the land:
Alcohol, drug abuse,
Immorality on every hand…
Such sins being excused;
Adulterers, homosexuals, thieves,
Murderers, liars, pride –
Oh, how the Spirit of our God grieves…
It was for sin Christ died…
For Purity of Life.

May God fill us with the Holy Ghost,
And set our hearts afire,
To reach the lost sheep on every coast…
Lifting them from the mire.
Jesus came to earth to save lost men –
Souls in darkness and strife –
And deliver them from chains of sin…
To Purity of Life…
Yes, Purity of Life.

 “Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place?
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul
unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord,
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”
Jesus said: “Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.”
(Ps 24:3-5; Matt 5:8)
