As God’s chosen people, both holy and loved,
compassion suffusing your souls,
In kindness, humility, gentleness clothed,
may you wait patiently for the Lord.
Forgive ev’ry grievance that’s found in your midst,
in measure akin to the Lord.
Above ev-ry-thing put on love as your crown
as together by Jesus you’re bound.
Your hearts should be ruled by the peace Jesus gave.
In Christ now one body you are.
In peace you were called, so be thankful in all.
May Christ’s word richly dwell in your hearts.
By wisdom and grace may your teaching be known.
Sing psalms, hymns and songs in your hearts.
Whatever you do, both in word and in deed,
do with thanks in the name of the Lord.
