1 Peter 2:9–10

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

(ESV)

Hymn : TLH 30 st. 1,6: Oh, That I Had a Thousand Voices Hymnary.org link

1. Oh that I had a thousand voices 
To praise my God with thousand tongues! 
My heart, which in the Lord rejoices, 
Would then proclaim in grateful songs 
To all, wherever I might be, 
What great things God hath done for me. 

6. O Father, deign Thou, I beseech Thee, 
To listen to my earthly lays; 
A nobler strain in heaven shall reach Thee, 
When I with angels hymn Thy praise 
And learn amid their choirs to sing 
Loud hallelujahs to my King.
