In his great mercy
Resurrection of Christ from dead
Then the 1st block on the left is vs 1 ideas - primarily vs 6-7. We know they're linked to the central idea by the "In this..." that Paul starts with. I thought this would be a good 1st verse as it expands on the present implications of this living hope...
Griefs and trials
Faith proved genuine
Of greater worth than gold
The second verse then focuses on the assurance of this living hope in the future - drawn from vs 4-5. Again, you can see how this section expands and 'fleshes' out what this living hope is.
Never perish, spoil, fade
Kept in heaven
Sheilded by God's power until coming of salvation in final day
In my mind this vs 1 / vs 2 order makes most sense, helping the singer to entering into and engaging with the song from their present circumstances. But you could also argue for the other way around - as Paul has it - to firmly establish the hope before getting to the present relevance.
The bridge then takes a different angle - we actually articulate our joyous response to this hope - from verses 8-9.
Have not seen him => Love him
Don't see him now => filled with glorious (inexpressible) joy
Receiving goal of faith => salvation
The third verse ideas come back to the central idea - our living hope, and express the 'therefore' ideas...what do we do now as a consequence - coming from vs 13-16.
Ready for action
Set hope on future grace
Do not conform to old ways
Be holy as God is holy
