"You have made know to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore." ~Psalm 16:11
I'm dead, I'm dead, hidden in God with Christ,
dead to this world, to God I'm alive,
my passions and desires have been crucified,
but in my flesh I see deceit and lies.
Its no longer I, but evil in me,
Its no longer I, the evil I see,
for in my flesh nothing good can be,
for this old man is no longer me,
What shall we say?.... No responsibility!
shall I do what I want now I am free,
Thank God in this flesh I'm not alone,
for grace reigns from the throne,
ruling over to bring me home,
a slave, to righteousness I am owned.
and from this grace I cannot fall,
unless I go back under the law,
to which I'm dead, and dead to sin,
so to God I am alive,
I'm dead, hidden with God in Christ.
~ Stuart Whitby
