God in His justifying has a plan,

A deeper purpose for a corporate man.

When we were called, this mighty Lord of all

Appeared to us to save us from the fall.


We walked as strangers unaware of Him,

But in His glory God shined deep within,

Infusing His own element in us;

This precious essence was our Lord Jesus.


What glory! How attractive was this light!

How we appreciated such a sight!

Our first reaction was belief in Him —

This precious God has placed Himself within.


Our first reflection of this element

Reflected Jesus back to God, Who sent

His own response to count as righteousness

Our faith in Him Who was infused in us.


But we would hold to this reality,

Our Jesus Christ in us our all to be,

Enjoying all He is abundantly,

Content to have this One eternally.


Thus God could never be so satisfied;

Knowing that we cared only to abide

In our experiences of His Son,

Not caring for His goal to make us one.


Still He would seek those faithful saints who'd hear

His call to give up everything so dear,

To offer up their individual Christ;

To come together for the Body life.
