Being the elect of God,
Holy and dearly loved;
We should honor and laud,
Being our beloved.

Clothe with a heart of grace,
With mercy and kindness;
Give comfort to embrace,
For your faith is blindness.

Be gentle and patient,
Forgiving each other;
Who believes is a saint,
Trusting one another.

Just as the Lord forgives,
You should forgive others;
For anyone who lives,
Treat them as your brothers.

To these virtues, add love,
Which is the perfect bond;
As it flows from above,
From the heavenly pond.

Let the peace of the Lord,
Have control of your heart;
To be in one accord,
Letting His words impart.

Let the word of Christ dwell,
Richly with His wisdom;
Blocking any access to hell,
Only unto His Kingdom.

Sing praise of hymns and psalms,
Worshipping through your tongue;
Praise Him by saying poems,
Every breath that is flung.

Hymns and spiritual songs,
All with grace in your heart;
Confession of your wrongs,
Asking that they depart.

To do in word or deed,
Do it all in His name;
God will help you succeed,
When willing to proclaim.

Give thanks to the Father,
For giving us His Son;
Making Christ a Brother,
As the Anointed One.
