     4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.(KJV)

1. O God of mercy, God of might, 
In love and pity infinite, 
Teach us, as ever, in Thy sight, 
To live our life to Thee. 

2. And Thou, who cam’st on earth to die 
That fallen man might live thereby, 
Oh, hear us; for to Thee we cry, 
In hope, O Lord, to Thee. 

3. Teach us the lesson Thou hast taught, 
To feel for those Thy blood hath bought 
That every word and deed and thought 
May work a work for Thee. 

4. All are redeemed, both far and wide, 
Since Thou, O Lord, for all hast died. 
Oh, teach us, whatsoe’er betide, 
To love them all in Thee! 

5. In sickness, sorrow, want, or care, 
Whate’er it be, ’tis ours to share; 
May we, where help is needed, there 
Give help as unto Thee! 

6. And may Thy Holy Spirit move 
All those who live to live in love 
Till Thou shalt greet in heaven above 
All those who live to Thee.
