Ephesians 4:4-6

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

There are a number of excellent lyrical settings of this passage listed below. This one also has an excellent musical setting:

Ephesians 4:30-32

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

An expository song doesn’t always have to be a deeply doctrinal song. Some passages of Scripture are practical. Isaac Watts here bases a practical hymn text on this practical passage:

The Spirit, like a peaceful dove
Flies from the realms of noise and strife
Why should we vex and grieve his love
Who seals our souls to heavenly life

Tender and kind be all our thoughts
Through all our lives let mercy run
So God forgives our numerous faults
For the dear sake of Christ, his Son
