Representative Text

3 Made flesh for our sake,
that we might partake
the nature divine,
and again in his image,
his holiness shine.

the tidings they bring
who publish to sinners
their Savior and King.

5 And while we are here,
our King shall appear,
his Spirit impart,
and form his full image
of love in our heart.
