With Humility, Be Clothed (1 Peter 5:5-11)

With humility towards
One another, be clothed
For God favours the humble;
To the proud He’s opposed
Humble yourself then
Under God’s mighty hand
Cast all your cares upon Him
For He cares and He understands
He will lift you up in due time
Be alert and sober of mind
For the devil seeks
To devour God’s own
Who undergo sufferings
Of the same kind
Resist the enemy
And stand firm in the faith
And our glorious God
Of all grace
Who called you to be
With Him in heaven
He will restore you
Your suffering won’t last
He will strengthen you
Make you firm and steadfast
To Him be power
Always and forever. Amen.

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
