6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

     21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.(KJV)

1. I am Jesus’ little lamb, 
Ever glad at heart I am; 
For my Shepherd gently guides me, 
Knows my need, and well provides me, 
Loves me every day the same, 
Even calls me by my name. 

2. Day by day, at home, away, 
Jesus is my Staff and Stay. 
When I hunger, Jesus feeds me, 
Into pleasant pastures leads me; 
When I thirst, He bids me go 
Where the quiet waters flow. 

3. Who so happy as I am, 
Even now the Shepherd’s lamb? 
And when my short life is ended, 
By His angel host attended, 
He shall fold me to His breast, 
There within His arms to rest.
