If Christians are priests,
Then pastors are, too,
Though phobics of Rome
That label eschew.
Vested in Jesus,
They speak words divine
That Body and Blood
Suffuse bread and wine.
Sacred is their work
In sign and in Word
Their tongue’s not their own,
When they speak, God’s heard.
Give heed to your task,
You priests of our God,
And labor for Him
Whom all Christians laud.

    I’d change the following two lines.
    Sacred, their work
    They speak, God is heard
