Song Page    Play MP3

Written for Untang Atacay, from Indonesia

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God 
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God

that brings salvation to everyone, everyone who believes: 
that brings salvation first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 

For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed
a righteousness that is by faith from first to last

Just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
Just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God 
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God

Dedicated to Andre Reid, from America

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts.

Let them turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for He will freely pardon.

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts.

but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, 
but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Son of God,

and that by believing you may have life in his name.
and that by believing you may have life in his name.

Dedicated to Sasdy Luil, from Indonesia

 As a prisoner for the Lord, then,  As a prisoner for the Lord, then, 

I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling,
worthy of the calling you have received. 
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, 
bearing with one another in love. (repeat) 
 
Make every effort to keep the unity 
of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 
There is one body and one Spirit,
just as you were called to one hope when you were called;

 one Lord (one Lord), one faith, (one faith)
one baptism (one baptism); one God (one God)
and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Doodle lo do do doodle lo do
