     7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. 8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: 9 And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. 10 And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. 11 And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. 12 And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.

     13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

     14 And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. 15 Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, 16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

     17 I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God. 18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed, 19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. 20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation: 21 But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.(KJV)

1. Come, Thou almighty King, 
Help us Thy name to sing, 
Help us to praise! 
Father all-glorious, 
O’er all victorious, 
Come and reign over us, 
Ancient of Days. 

2. Come, Thou Incarnate Word, 
Gird on Thy mighty sword, 
Our prayer attend; 
Come and Thy people bless 
And give Thy Word success; 
Stablish Thy righteousness, 
Savior and Friend! 

3. Come, holy Comforter, 
Thy sacred witness bear 
In this glad hour. 
Thou, who almighty art, 
Now rule in every heart 
And ne’er from us depart, 
Spirit of Power! 

4. To the great One in Three 
Eternal praises be 
Hence evermore! 
His sovereign majesty 
May we in glory see 
And to eternity 
Love and adore!
