The love I have for you cannot be quenched.
My people, even when I chasten you
I am caring about your attitude.
How can I be glorified in you and through you
When between you there is contention and strife?
My people, I long for your unity –
To see you honouring and caring for one another.
I long for Christ to be honoured in you
And the fruit of our Spirit growing in you,
As well as you growing in the gifts He gives.
I am your Father and I know you well
And never will my love fail you.
I gave you my Son that you might believe in me
And have everlasting life – my only begotten Son.
He passed on to you my glory my people.
It is by your love one for another
That the world will come to know that He lives.
