The One Who Overcomes

mountaintop

 

Lord to the one who overcomes

you have promised the tree of life,

you have promised an eternity

without trials or strife;

you have promised that in your presence

they will always be,

so I want one of the ones

who overcomes to be me.

 

I know that eternal life

is a gift that you give,

and because of your great sacrifice

in heaven I will live;

but that is just the start

of a life that will overcome,

everyday there are struggles

and battles to be won.

 

So I pray that I hold fast

to the testimony of my Lord,

and that I will daily fight

and wield my spiritual sword;

so that when I stand before you

and the battles are all done,

I may know that I served you

and will have hopefully overcome!
