All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.

The second presentation is a "full music" version with interlined in standard hymn format. Finally, the hymn is set in "tune line" version, suitable for duplication in a bulletin. Tune writers are renowned, and provide a freshness such that it is like singing these ancient texts for the very first time.
