Oh, who can declare the mercy, peace,
That come from an existence free
Of sin, of death, of darkness all?
Yea, he who serves with charity.
Oh, who can claim the blessings pure
That come from walking straight and sure
Along the path that leads to life?
Yea, he who patiently endures.
Oh, who can bless the lives of men,
Enrich their souls from deep within,
Relieve their burdens, lift them up?
Yea, he without the stains of sin.
Oh, who breaks forth as the rising sun,
Proclaimed by all a champion?
Rich with honor, eternal life?
Yea, he who lives like God’s own Son.
