Ephesians 6:1-9 > Let us Raise up Godly Seed

Let us raise up godly seed for Jesus Christ Let us teach them not the cruel ways of Cain Let us train them in obedience for life Till the blessing in God’s Law they each retain! May they each of God’s commandments learn to keep May they bind them on the fingers of both hands; […]

Ephesians 5:22-33 > Holy Matrimony

O sister are you in subjection to Christ? If so your husband is your master; Give to him cheerfully the strength of your life Make him your prophet, priest and pastor. Dear brother are you ruling cruelly your wife? You are her happiness to die for; Let not your lips for her be seasoned with […]

Ephesians 5:15-21 > These Evil Days

Passing through dark and evil days Seeking understanding of God’s ways Discarding the wine, Redeeming the time With a heart that’s yearning. Others are striding at my side Brothers whose hearts are open wide Their spiritual songs Keep me travelling on To the gates of Zion Such trouble, Lord, give me wisdom Such stubble, hasten Your kingdom! I’m […]

Ephesians 5:1-17 > Christian Maturity

As image bearers we’re to be God’s holy heirs in infancy Commending Christ’s redemption as a fragrance; No more must we be overcome By wickedness for we’ve become A lantern for the world to see His radiance Chorus: Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah! Let all who flee to Christ declare The worldly ways they used to […]

Ephesians 4:17-32 > The Sleeping Bride!

Does the path that you walk and the way that you talk Just resemble the people next door? They won’t comprehend if they sense you pretend That in Christ you have treasures galore. Ignorance, false pretence, indolence, carnal sense, The pagans around you confuse and surround you Their anthems pretentiously deep But the Bride is […]

Ephesians 4:1-6 > A plea for unity

Every word God has spoken Is plain as the sun in the sky; Yet the Church by divisions is broken With multitudes passing on by. The doctrine her martyrs defended Is silenced or poisoned with lies; Today we are calmly contented To be wise in our own foolish eyes. Are the Scriptures you depend on Constrained […]

Ephesians 1:13-23 > Blessed God of Jesus Christ

Blessed God of Jesus Christ, Gracious Father, full of glory Open wide my feeble eyes To the gospel story… May the prospect of my mind Be receptive and enlightened; Many falter being blind, Snared by their horizon… Superseding all dominion Jesus is supreme over all; On His throne within the heavens, Filling with His fullness […]

Ephesians 3:8-13 > The unsearchable riches of Christ

How unsearchable the treasure We behold in Jesus Christ, Way beyond all words and measure, Far exceeding any price; Let the gentiles hear with wonder Of His noble sacrifice! By the Holy Spirit given His primordial decree: ‘God and man in sweet communion’ Is no more a mystery! From the dawn of time no seer Did […]

Ephesians 3:14-21 > A Prayer of St Paul

Blessed God and Father of Our Lord and Saviour, In our hearts we humbly kneel before Your throne Recognising that all nations under heaven By Your counsel and decree are Yours alone. Make us mighty in our inward constitution; By the power of Your Spirit now impart Holy riches from the treasuries of heaven Till […]

Ephesians 2:19 – 3:7 > Rooted on the firm foundation

Rooted on the firm foundation of the Lord’s appointed men, We are servants of Christ the Son of Man; Foreign culture lies behind us, now we’re fellow citizens – Saints and members of God’s most holy clan. Pressing on, pressing on, Seeing yonder the New Jerusalem! Summoned as a royal priesthood, sanctified and born again, […]
