Verse 1
We are God's people the chosen of the Lord,
born of His Spirit established by His Word;
Our cornerstone is Christ alone,
and strong in Him we stand:
Oh let us live transparently,
and walk heart to heart and hand in hand

Verse 2
We are God's loved ones, the bride of Christ our Lord,
for we have known it, the love of God outpoured;
Now let us learn how to return
The gift of love once given:
Oh let us share each joy and care
and live with a zeal that pleases heaven.

Verse 3
We are the body of which the Lord is head,
called to obey him, now risen from the dead:
He wills us be a family,
diverse yet truly one:
Oh let us freely give our gifts,
and so shall God's work on earth be done.

Verse 4
We are a temple the Spirit's dwelling place,
Formed in great weakness, a cup to hold God's grace;
Alone, we die, for on its own
each ember loses fire:
Yet joined in one the flame burns on
to give warmth and light and to inspire
