God's Chosen, Cherished Child

Because of Christ's sacrifice, 
With God, I am reconciled
He has adopted me, 
His chosen, cherished child
He is my Abba Father; 
I have no need to fear 
For His assuring Spirit
Is always with me here 
He will not leave me 
And if I foolishly stray,
He will, forever, with me, 
Faithfully stay
He has graced me 
With a foretaste 
Of my rich inheritance 
Which I will fully see
In His glorious presence
