I Peter 2:1-6: Coming to God

Because of this cast off,
Your malice and deceit,
Hypocrisy, and cruel envy,
And never evil speak.

But as a new born drink,
The milk of Scripture graced,
And thereby grow, indeed you know,
How God’s salvation tastes.

And also come to Him –
This living stone – draw near.
We sinful men rejected Him,
But God chose Him as dear.

And you as living stone,
Are built into His home,
In priestly guise give sacrifice,
And hope in Christ alone.

“Behold in Zion laid,
“This Cornerstone I claim.
“Whom He receives, in Him believes,
“Will not be put to shame!”
