Give thanks that, through Jesus Christ, we have been chosen, adopted as children of God and immersed in grace, blessings and the truth of God’s intent for humanity and creation.

Beloved, God’s Chosen                                                         ELW #648

1    Beloved, God’s chosen,

      put on as a garment

      compassion, forgiveness, and goodness of heart.

      Above all, before all,

      let love be your raiment

      that binds into one every dissonant part.

2    Within, call forth Wisdom,

      to dwell in you richly;

      let peace rule your hearts,

      and that peace be of Christ.

      And from the heart’s chamber,

      beloved and holy,

      let singing thanksgiving to God ever rise.

3    Beloved, God’s chosen,

      put on as a garment

      compassion, forgiveness, and goodness of heart.

      Above all, before all,

      let love be your raiment

      that binds into one ev’ry dissonant part.
