(not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.)
Let us continue to meet together, that we may encourage and strengthen one another. Especially as we see the end drawing close.
Brothers, we know where we are going;
For we know Christ, His love is showing.
The curtain of darkness has been lifted
Revealing His forgiveness to us is gifted.
For what Christ suffered and endured,
We can know that our faith is assured.
Our evil hearts purged and made pure;
His grace and mercy steadfast and sure.
We no longer in darkness fumble and grope,
But stand unwavering confessing our hope.
Let us help each other to point to God above,
Telling everyone of His wondrous love.
Draw close and strengthen each other,
Come together encouraging our brothers.
As we see the world spinning into a blur,
And we can see that the end coming closer.
