I Peter 1:1-6: Certain Salvation

A letter out of Babylon,
From one who talked with Christ,
Who lived with Him, and fished for men,
For those elect to life,
May grace and peace
To you increase,
To those who God foreknew,
To pilgrims, all of you.

My Brothers, listen as I tell,
For we must understand,
This covenant, obedient,
The outline of God’s plan,
A sacrifice,
That does suffice,
To bring us to His hope,
Abundant mercy quote.

I speak of Christ’s atoning death,
The Resurrected Day,
That gives us, hence, inheritance,
That can not fade away.
Protected, child,
And undefiled,
This Christ whom we have craved,
In heaven for us saved.

By God’s own power we were saved,
Through faith, by grace, for love,
To be unveiled, when all else fails,
Revealed from God above.
Rejoice, dear child,
Though various trails,
A little while we brave,
Rejoice, for you are saved!
