My son, My son, why are you striving?
You can't add one thing to what's been done for you
I did it all while I was dying
Rest in your faith, My peace will come to you

For when I hear the praises start
Oh, I want to rain upon you
Blessings that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you

Because you are My child and you know Me
To Me you're only holy
Nothing that you've done remains
Only what you do for Me

My child, My child, why are you weeping?
You will not have to wait forever
That day and that hour is in My keeping
The day I'll bring you into Heaven

For when I hear the praises start
My child, I want to rain upon you
Blessings that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you

Because you are My child and you know Me
To Me you're only holy
Nothing that you've done remains
Only what you do in Me
Just what you do for Me

My precious bride, the day is nearing
When I'll take you in My arms and hold you
I know there are so many things that you've been hearing
But you just hold on to what I have told you

For when I hear the praises start
My bride, I want to rain upon you
Blessings that will fill your heart
Oh, I see no stain upon you

Because you are My child and you know Me
To Me you're only holy
Nothing that you've done will remain
Only what you do for Me
Just what you do for Me

What you do for Me
Just what you do for Me
