As a prisoner of the Lord,
I cannot let it be ignored;
And encourage you to live life,
In a way to cope with the strife.
That will prove that God has called you,
And has high expectations through;
Remember to stay one accord,
To be a servant of the Lord.
Always be gentle and humble,
Remembering not to stumble;
Because if you fall you might stray,
Possibly then you disobey.
To others be patient and kind,
Giving them all a peace of mind;
Lovingly accept each other,
As being sister and brother.
Through the peace that binds together,
Bonding like glue to your brother;
Through the peace that ties with others,
Quench sinful fire that smothers.
Maintain unity at your best,
The Holy Spirit does the rest;
For whatever the Spirit gives,
Will be as within you He lives.
With one body and one Spirit,
Through salvation you inherit;
The same when called to share one hope,
Through the turbulence as to cope.
There is one Lord, one faith, one birth,
Through baptism while on earth;
One God who is Father of all,
Each of us home that He will call.
