Hand Chosen
by Deborah Ann Belka

Chosen by God,
hand-picked for the Vine
once broken vessels
now flow with New Wine.

Royalty are we now,
heirs of God's loving grace
receivers of His mercy
our own cross we embrace.

Messengers of peace,
deliverers of Good News
now that we have found
our hope and refuge.

With praise for our Savior,
to the world we seem odd
as we worship and thank
the One and Only True God.

Out of the dark we came,
into God's wondrous light
no longer powerless . . .
now filled with His Holy might!

1 Peter 2:9

"But ye are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood, an holy nation,
a peculiar people; that ye should
shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of
darkness into his marvellous light;"
