Poem: “Confirmation Day”

Confirmation Day

Be with me my child,
Be with me my friend.
Walk with me in your lifetime
And your life will never end.

Be with me my servant
Be true to only me.
And I have given my word,
That I shall always be with you.

Receive me this day child,
I have waited long for you.
Receive me this day my servant
As you were meant to do.

It has been ordained before your time
That you would be here today
It has been set by the Father
That today you would receive me

The time is right, the moment is right
And I am received by you.
And forever I will never depart from you
It cannot ever be undone.

We are together forever more
Forged by Faith and fire
Never again to be separate
Ever to be joined together

Prepare my throne room
Where I shall dwell
Keep it pure and clean for your sake
Keep it pure and clean for my joy

This day, this moment, this hour
Will never be repeated again.
We are joined forever
As it was meant to be.

So live with me in Faith,
In love and service.
Never separate from me.
Do not stray.

Beware the snares,
Beware the trap,
Beware of the temptations.

Purity is our bond.
Faith is our strength.
And love is our armor.

Together we are life
Apart is only death.
Love me as I love you
And you will never be lost.

Love Me, serve Me, stay with Me.

Praise God
