Song About Jesus | “Emulate the Lord Jesus” | Jesus Christ Is My Beloved

I
Jesus completed God’s mission,
the redemption work of all man
by giving His cares to God’s will,
without selfish purpose or plans.
At the center He placed God’s plan.
To heavenly Father He prayed,
seeking heavenly Father’s will.
He would seek and He’d always pray.
If like Jesus you give all your cares to God
and turn your back to flesh,
God will trust you with vital tasks
to enable you to serve Him.
II
He prayed and said, “God the Father!
Accomplish that which is Your will.
Don’t act based on My intentions,
act so that Your plan is fulfilled.
Why should You care for man who’s weak,
who is like an ant in Your hand?
I wish only to do Your will.
Do in Me as You would intend.”
If like Jesus you give all your cares to God
and turn your back to flesh,
God will trust you with vital tasks
to enable you to serve Him.
III
On the road to Jerusalem,
Jesus’s heart felt agonized.
Yet He kept His word, powered forth
towards where He would be crucified.
At last He was nailed to the cross,
became an image of sinful flesh,
completing work of redemption,
rising above shackles of death.
If like Jesus you give all your cares to God
and turn your back to flesh,
God will trust you with vital tasks
to enable you to serve Him.
IV
Jesus lived for thirty-three years,
doing all to satisfy God,
never thinking of loss or gain
but the will of God the Father.
The service of the Lord Jesus
was always in line with God’s will.
So the burden of redemption
He was qualified to fulfill.
Boundless suffering He endured,
and countless times Satan tempted.
Yet disheartened He never was.
In trust and love, God gave Him this task.
If like Jesus you give all your cares to God
and turn your back to flesh,
God will trust you with vital tasks
to enable you to serve Him.And only at times like these
will you dare to say you do His will,
you complete His commission,
that you truly are serving God.
