John 14 verse 31

“But that the world may know that I love the Father,
and as the Father gave Me commandment,

(Acts 4:12)

When we feel led by God
And are obedient to His will
In our lives
We can rest assured that He knows the end

But He is faithful and true
And just as Jesus trusted
And obeyed the Father
