For we are God’s chosen people –
a holy nation,
God’s special possession.
So that we may declare the praises of God who called us out of the darkness,
out of our brokeness,
out of our emptiness.
Into his wonderful, magnificent light.
Once, we were homeless and without God.
But now we are the people of God.
Once, we knew nothing about God’s mercy.
But now we have accepted his mercy and we are forgiven – now and always. We abide in his grace.
First, he chose us.
Now, we have chosen him and we are complete.
