Romans 12:1

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

There are many songs based on Romans 1:1 (see the listings below). Charles Wesley’s “Giver of Each Perfect Gift” is one of the best hymns based from this passage. It begins:

Giver of each perfect gift
By Thy cleansing mercy healed
Up to Thee our souls we lift
And to Thee our bodies yield

Now our sacrifice receive
Humbly offered through Thy Son
In Thee may we ever live
In us may Thy will be done

Full lyrics and sheet music are available for free on Hymnary.

Romans 12:15

Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

Though this song is probably more suited for a special music than a congregational performance, Marcia Henry’s thoughtful song “Weep” ties this passage together nicely with¬†Jesus weeping at Lazarus’ grave.
