Redeemed

(Henry Law, "Redemption")

"God bought you with a high price. So you
must honor God with your body." 1 Cor. 6:20

"God purchased you at a high price. Don't
be enslaved by the world." 1 Cor. 7:23

Redeemed ones are no more their own. 

Your time is redeemed; use it as
a consecrated talent in His cause.

Your minds are redeemed; employ them to
learn His truth and, to meditate on His ways.
Thus make them armories of holy weapons.

Your eyes are redeemed; let them not look on
vanity; close them on all sights and books of folly.

Your feet are redeemed; let them trample on
the world, and climb the upward hill of Zion, and
bear you onward in the march of Christian zeal.

Your tongues are redeemed; let them only
sound His praise, and testify to His love, and
call sinners to His cross.

Your hearts are redeemed; let them love
Him wholly, and have no seat for rivals.

"For you know that it was not with perishable
 things such as silver or gold that you were
 redeemed from the empty way of life handed
 down to you from your forefathers, but with
 the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without
 blemish or defect." 1 Peter 1:18-19
