“You were bought with a price: therefore glorify God.” 

I Corinthians 6:20 

God, who didst so dearly buy 

These wretched souls of ours, 

Help us thee to glorify 

With all our ransomed powers: 

Ours they are not, Lord, but thine; 

Let the vessels of thy grace, 

Body, soul, and spirit, join 

In their Redeemer’s praise
