I Peter 2:9-10: Once Upon a Time

You were a worthless prostitute,
Rejecting love for what was lewd,
Once upon a time.
You were disowned and people-less,
No mercy for unrighteousness,
Rejoicing in your crime.

But now you bear the name of God,
And purged of all your faithless fraud,
By His love revived.
Adopted, children of the Lord,
By mercy innocence restored,
So dead in God — alive!

So irresistible His grace,
Forgiveness I can not replace,
I’m His and He is mine.
Through all my sins He calls me ‘bride,’
In rapture that He cast aside,
My once-upon-a-time.
