"You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light" (1 Peter 2:9 NIV).
We know ourselves only in relation to you.
You lead. We follow.
You call. We respond.
You have called us from darkness to light.
You have a purpose and you have chosen each of us and all of us
to declare your praises,
to tell of your mighty deeds.
Because of who you are and what you've done,
and because of who we are and what's been done for us,
we respond to you in answering faith.
We will declare your praises.
We will tell of your mighty deeds.
Help us to remember who we are:
chosen, royal, holy, spoken for.
You are our God and we are your people.
