Sanctification by the Spirit
according to the foreknowledge of God the Father by being set apart by the Spirit for obedience and for sprinkling with Jesus Christ’s blood. May grace and peace be yours in full measure!
[1 Pet 1:2 NET]
Can aught beneath a power divine
The stubborn will subdue?
’Tis thine, eternal Spirit, thine,
To form our hearts anew,
’Tis thine the passions to recall,
And upwards bid them rise;
And make the scales of error fall
From reason’s darkened eyes.
