Privilege

The priv'lege God extends to those who spend each day with Him

Allowing His sweet presence to indwell the hearts of them

Is greater than we comprehend or angels even know

For in that time we spend with Him more like Him we will grow

As in His very image more like Him we're made to be

The image of Almighty God He wants the world to see

Defying explanation as He transforms every soul

Whose greatest hope in time with Him is likeness as their goal

That likeness to the Father as was lived through Christ the Son

Of which He shared and taught us when He said we all are one

One people as one body with one purpose under heav'n

To share the Light of Life with all to whom we have been given

As instruments of holiness as channels of God's love

As testimony to the One God gave us from above

Who daily by example showed us how we need to be

Transformed into His image that the world in us might see

The Standard God expects in those who hope to see His face

Who hope to have Christ's righteousness that only comes through grace

Who daily grow in Jesus' faith that cannot know defeat

But is the Light of Life to all in life we're led to meet

That they too might see Jesus introduced through you and me

And want more of the character He's made in us they see

That's patient under trial faithful in each circumstance

That often claims the souls of those who give the devil glance

Instead of keeping focus on the true and living Way

Allowing Him to guide us in the things we do and say

Wherein alone is power to defeat the enemy

Who daily preys upon us through the things we hear and see

But when we know that privilege as we've been blessed to know

The Father through the Spirit Who directs where we must go

And what we do and say there that reveals His love in us

Then we fulfill His purpose as we're faithful to His trust

As children in that family that will not have an end

Reflective of our Holy God on Whom we do depend

Because each passing hour while still here we choose to be

One body He's ordained by grace for all the world to see

John 15:1-14; Romans 12:1-5
