I Peter 2:9 (KJV)

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people,
that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hat called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

A stranger here on earth,
Citizens of Heaven's splendors,
Sinners saved by grace,
Recipients of the New Birth,
Embraced by our Triune God,
Gloriously known by our new name
In Heaven's royal circles of faith,
Daily and forever living in the
Beautiful palace of God's grace,
And yet lovingly called to
Faithfully and consistently
Extend the kindness and
Compassion of our God
By loving like Christ,
By living like Christ,
By seventy times seven
Forgiving like Christ,
By telling others about
The glorious good news,
The royal hope
Of Jesus Christ,
That dwells within.
For we are His,
Chosen generation,
Royal Priesthood,
Holy nation,
Peculiar people,
Called by our
Magnificent Savior
To be
Contemporary,
Christ centered,
Christ-like,
Love filled,
Word honoring,
Grace saturated,
Heavenly minded,
Biblically studious,
Spectacular,
Victorious,
Vivid,
Authentic,
Gentle,
Heroic,
Resilient,
Servant Warriors
Of God's grace
While here
In this exotic,
Foreign place
Called earth.

This is stunning. I could easily see this being read aloud by the people of the church all in unison. I know to some that may not seem like a compliment, but it is meant to be one of the highest kind.

You put a lot of work into this one.

Your arrangement added "flavor" as I read it.

Nice job.
