    From the place where two faces are accepted,
    And where the gospel,
    From them to us and even us to them,
    Isn’t being reflected in our own lifestyles.
    From the mindset that godliness present only in form,
    Is sufficient to take us through our constant battles and storms.
    Let us ascend…

    From the diversification of interpretations,
    Of conflicting bible-education,
    That continues to deter the minds of the people of this nation.
    WE should have been fully armed with the Truth.
    Was it lost? Was it something we had to find?
    No...it was in front of us the entire time.
    We just refused to embrace it.
    Let us ascend…

    From the practice of with the Almighty we only commune,
    Not to simply say thank you,
    Or to make sure that we are still in tune with His Spirit,
    But when our desires have not been met,
    And when we are feeling a little guilty,
    And fearing that we might not have another chance to say, ‘Father forgive me.’
    Let us ascend…

    From the tendency of becoming consumed with earthly treasures,
    5-10 minute pleasures, and pointless quick cash endeavors.
    We need to be set aside, so that we could be easily identified,
    As strong young people, true though tried,
    So we can seek His face,
    And with clean hands and pure hearts,
    We can stand in His holy place.
    Let us ascend…
