Hebrews 13:20–21 (NKJV)
20 Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Now may He who from the dead
Brought the Shepherd of the sheep,
Jesus Christ, our King and Head,
All our souls in safety keep!
May He teach us to fulfill
What is pleasing in His sight;
Perfect us all in His will,
And preserve us day and night!
To that dear Redeemer’s praise,John Newton, 1725 – 1807
Who the cov’nant sealed with blood,
Let our hearts and voices raise
Loud thanksgivings to our God.
