the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
for the spiritual blessings that Christ has brought us from heaven!
Before the world was created, God had Christ choose us
to live with him and to be
his holy and innocent and loving people.
God was kind and decided that Christ would choose us
to be God's own adopted children.
God was very kind to us because of the Son he dearly loves,
and so we should praise God.
sacrificed his life's blood to set us free,
always does what he plans,
