SAINT PAUL HYMN

O CHRIST, YOUR CHOSEN VESSEL

This hymn can be sung to the tune used for Aurelia
Meter: 76 76 (The Church’s One Foundation)


O Christ, your chosen vessel
Did carry forth your name
In mission to all people
The Gospel to proclaim.
He preached with grace resounding,
Becoming all to all,
And we with praise abounding
In thanks acclaim Saint Paul.

Apostle to the nations,
Although in speech unskilled,
He laid the strong foundations
So others then could build.
His call for no division,
To seek the things above,
Has given us the vision:
One body bound by love.

If one part comes to suffer,
The others feel the pain,
If one receives an honor,
We all the joy obtain.
The parts were thus intended –
Together to be one.
All strife should then be ended
In you, the Father’s Son.

To you, with God the Father,
And Spirit, ever one,
We give with Paul our brother
The praise for marvels done.
Conformed in imitation,
May we from factions cease
And spread with jubilation
His words of grace and peace.
