Now Present Ye All Your Bodies

“Now present ye all your bodies
As a living sacrifice
Holy, pure to God our Father;
Truly this is meet and right!”
Lord eternal, great Creator,
Loving Father, God adored;
Re-conform us to Thine Image
Through Thy Son, the Christ, our Lord!

“Cast ye off the works of darkness
And put on the armour of light!
Put away all rank corruption,
Malice, envy, strife and spite!”
Spent the nighttime! Gone the darkness!
Glorious daylight is at hand!
Jesus, with Thyself do clothe us;
Thou true, perfect, spotless Lamb!

“Be ye all conformed no longer
To the pattern of this world;
Rather be your minds transformèd
And renewèd by the Lord!”
Holy Spirit, loving Healer,
Fire of God’s transforming love,
Bring within us to completion
The good work Thou hast begun!
