Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-2
1 How fair the Church of Christ shall stand,
A beacon light in all the land,
When love and faith all hearts inspire,
And all unite in one desire:
To love each other, and agree
To live in peace and unity.
2 'Tis all in vain that you profess
The doctrines of the Church, unless
You live according to your creed,
And show your faith by word and deed.
Observe the rule: To others do
As you would have them do to you.
3 Resentment, hate, and cruel jest
Must not be harbored in your breast,
Where love and charity should dwell.
Then, think and speak of others well,
Refrain from all that causes strife
And harms a truly Christian life.
4 So let your tongue, your heart, and mind
Agree to banish ev'ry kind
Of malice, falsehood and disguise.
And here on earth a paradise
Of peace and harmony maintain,
Where concord and good will shall reign.
5 O gracious God, renew my heart
And renovate each secret part,
That you'll be sanctified in me
'Til high above in heav'n I see
Where holy, holy, holy, Lord,
We sing to you with one accord!
