We claim our place on earth
Based upon our birth
None of us decided this
God gave life to us-a gift to use for good

We are aliens in this world
Called to live like Christ
Our relationship with Him
Is mirrored by the things we do

People count with Jesus
They should count with us
The greater our place
The greater our need for grace

Family is important
So is the widow, the orphan, and the poor
The better we treat the least of us
The stronger our relationship with Jesus

Each of us is first with Christ
He knows our name and our needs
Nothing we do surprises Him
Jesus is our friend
