It is a wonder to me that I am yours
Part of a chosen people
One of a royal priesthood
A citizen of a holy nation
A member of a people belonging to you
Let me declare with joy and confidence the praises of you who called me out of darkness into your marvellous light.
Once I was in darkness, now I am in light
Once I was not part of a people, not I am one of the people of God
Once I had not received mercy, now I have received mercy
Thank you gracious and wonderful Lord
Because I am one of your people, help me to live that way Lord
Help me to remember I am a stranger in the world
Help me to flee & abstain from sinful desires
Help me to live such a good life amongst unbelievers that they may come
to glorify you
Thank you for making me one of your own.
