Words

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Which according to His abundant mercy,
hath begotten us again unto a lively hope
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled,
that fadeth not away,
reserved in heav’n for you,
Who are kept by the power of God,
through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
But as He which hath calleth you is Holy,
so be ye holy in all manner of conversation.
Pass the time of your sojourning here in fear.
Love one another with a pure heart fervently.
See that ye love one another.
Love one another with a pure heart fervently.
Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incoruptible,
by the word of God.
For all flesh is as grass,
and all the glory of man
as the flower of grass.
The grass withereth,
and the flower thereof falleth away.
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever,
Amen.

Words 1 Peter 1 vv. 3–5, 15–17, 22–25
