1 As sons of the day and daughters of light,
no longer we sleep like creatures of night,
for Jesus has died that with him we may live;
by all he has given we learn how to give.
2 One body in Christ, let all play their part:
the lazy be warned, the timid take heart;
let those who are hurt never pay back with wrong,
but serve one another: together be strong!
3 Be constant in prayer, at all time rejoice,
in all things give thanks--let God hear your voice!
Alive to the Spirit, alert to the word,
test all things, and hold to what pleases the Lord.
4 May God who first called, gave peace and made whole,
preserve us from fault in body and soul;
our Lord Jesus Christ keep us firm in his grace
until at his coming we meet face to face.
