Running the Race as a Winner
When the book of life is opened
Will your name be found?
Will you shout hallelujah at the trumpet sound?
The dead shall stand before the throne.
They never entered life;
They turned their backs on God:
They wear the filthy rags of their own righteousness;
They stand on their dead deeds,
The dead stand before the throne.
We are not there.
We stepped from death into life.
We gave him our impurity
He gave us his purity.
We gave him our unrighteousness,
He gave us his righteousness.
Prayer: Great and marvelous are your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the saints! Who shall not fear you, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy, ad all the nations shall come and worship before you, for your judgments have been made manifest. And blessed be the name of the Lord God from this time forth ad forevermore.
