Make Every Effort to Enter

To those who have received,
Through the righteousness of Christ,
A precious faith and all we need
To live a loving, godly life:

Make every effort to increase
In characteristics of the Lord
Such as goodness and knowledge,
Perseverance and self-control

Then you will bring about
Deeper knowledge of Him
Who called us and cleansed us
From our former sins

This will help you steadily walk
To our Saviour's eternal kingdom
Of power, honour, glory and majesty
Where you'll receive a joyous welcome
