Risen in Him, a new life to claim
Dying to things that bring earthly gain.
A new mind, a new heart, hidden in Him.
Failing to follow Him - only we are to blame.
Christ is my life, my heart yearns for Him.
Dying to self, until my eyes dim.
This is my mission, as long as I live-
Bring Him glory, His gospel to give.
Forebearing, forgiving- just as Christ did.
Loving and letting- peace rule my mind.
Singing and praising with His indwelling Word-
With all that my life and breath may give.
