I am an immortal who pre-existed prior to the cosmos. Conceived in the mind of infinity, Hibernating within His being. I am an immortal, Purged of sin at due season, Indwelt in a mansion Built by a house band and weaver, To explore the galaxies, To interact with fellow immortals. I am an immortal, Putting on the cloak of mortals, Circumscribed within pre-destined path, Running the race with perseverance, Focused on the finish line, To overcome and cross over. I am an immortal Metamorphosed into a mortal. With a single aim and objective; Goal and aspiration, Mission and vision. To know Him and only Him, To bud and bear fruits of His Truth. And knowledge, to dispense it To all His creatures and creations. As the witnesses cheer me up, My hope is being rekindled, My faith is energized As His love sustains me. I am an immortal With an eternity in view, With my gaze fixed on Christ. As His light shines on my path, I shall overcome and cross over To be crowned and decorated With the priceless medal, The imperishable treasure, which is: Eternal Life!
