For the Church should be our service


Long Beach, CA, United States

Ep 5:25b …Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her

Ep 5:26 That He might sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word,

Ep 5:27 That He might present the church to Himself glorious, not having spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that she would be holy and without blemish.

God is after such a reproduction of himself displayed in his believers. May we be impressed and directed our whole lives to give ourselves to live for this expression.


Rochester, MN, United States

This song is found in the hymnal page 914. For the church should be our service. Amen.



My church is really struggling with membership and I would love to sing this as a special to help us collectively get inspired to change in order for our church to grow and rebuild but I have never heard it and there is no audio nor have I been able to find it anywhere else. HELP
