If you have been raised with Christ,
Seek the things that are above;
Where Christ has sat be enticed,
The right hand of God thereof.
Set your mind on things above,
Not on things that are on earth;
The affection from His love,
Far exceeds an earthly worth.
You have died life is hidden,
With Christ in God and in you;
Do not what is forbidden,
Rather what Christ has said true.
When Christ in your life appears,
In glory with Him will be seen;
He will be drying our tears,
Forgiveness all that has been.
Put to death the earth in you,
Passion and immorality;
Evil desire construe,
Lust which is idolatry.
On account of things of wrath,
For your disobedience;
While straying off the path,
Punishing for deviance.
In these you too have once walked,
When you were living in them;
Blasphemers how they have talked,
God is prepared to condemn.
You must put them all away,
Of obscene talk from your tongue;
For the things that you would say,
Offending God what is flung.
Lie not one to another,
Put off the old self of deeds;
Be gracious to your brother,
Catering as to His needs.
You must put on the new man,
Renewed in knowledge of Him;
All following of His plan,
Because His light is not dim.
