1 Corinthians 3:9
King James Version
For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, [ye are] God’s building.
What is a partner?
Who is a friend?
Do they come in the beginning?
Or somewhere near the end?
Do they say nice things to you?
Encouraging and kind?
Do they shine a light in the darkness?
When the path is hard to find?
Do they reach out to you?
When you need a helping hand?
Will they even loan you money?
When it’s time to pay the band?
There is a special partner though
That God sent to save us all
Saved us from the debt we owed
And stopped our fatal fall
And now He partners with His friends
And asks us to plant and sow
Among His fields and buildings
But He makes all things grow
How good it is to know His voice
As He calls us all by name
One day the garden will be restored
And be free of guilt and shame
So until that time, we partner hard
We go as sheep amid the lions
Let them all hear the great glad news
And leave this world of sin behind

You have partnered with those who would repent. Who have turned from their fallen ways and You consent to call us friends. May we work hard among Your fields and help to bring about a mighty harvest. It is You who makes all things grow but You have charged us to go and tell the Good News. May Its power change every life. Thank You for all things. Amen!
