(1 Peter 2:21-25) For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: (21) Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: (22) Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: (23) Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. (24) For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls. (25)

The God I serve is not made of stone
Nor crafted by human hands
The Saviour left His heavenly throne
And took on the form of man

His suffering was an example
His steps I diligently seek
He knew no sin, no deceit or guile
But bore my sins on the tree

His work on the cross brought death to sin
So I can live righteously
The Shepherd and Bishop of my soul
Purchased me for eternity
