     11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

     14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.(KJV)

1. For me to live Is Jesus. 
To die is gain for me; 
Then, whensoe’er He pleases, 
I meet death willingly. 

2. For Christ, my Lord and Brother, 
I leave this world so dim 
And gladly seek that other, 
Where I shall be with Him. 

3. My woes are nearly over, 
Though long and dark the road; 
My sin His merits cover, 
And I have peace with God. 

4. Lord, when my powers are failing, 
My breath comes heavily, 
And words are unavailing. 
Oh, hear my sighs to Thee! 

5. When mind and thought, 0 Savior, 
Are flickering like a light 
That to and fro doth waver 
Ere ’tis extinguished quite, 

6. In that last hour, oh, grant me 
To slumber soft and still, 
No doubts to vex or haunt me, 
Safe anchored on Thy will; 

7. And so to Thee still cleaving 
Through all death’s agony, 
To fall asleep believing 
And wake in heaven with Thee. 

8.Amen! Thou, Christ, my Savior. 
Wilt grant this unto me. 
Thy Spirit lead me ever 
That I fare happily.
