I was found dead by
what once had bound
me

No longer chained to
it’s deadly offerings…

My scars have been healed
within my spirit

Now my heart in sweet
praise will always sing

The chains of the law no
longer control me

By a single living act
of love I have been set free

And all the sinful passions
which once enslaved me

Were cast away by my Lord
who sacrificed Himself for
me

I felt the amazing power in
His life-saving blood

As the worldly filth and sin
within me was washed away

I never dreamed before
in my young life

I would sing joyfully
for the blessing of happy
days

Each new morning I rise
with meaningful purpose

Being counted as one who
was raised from the dead

Bearing daily fruit for
my Lord alone

Knowing with Him my spirit
is now eternally wed.

Romans 6, 1-4

1 What shall we say then? Are we to
continue in sin that grace may abound?
2 By no means! How can we who died to
sin still live in it?
3 Do you not know that all of us who
have been baptized into Christ Jesus
were baptized into his death?
4 We were buried therefore with him
by baptism into death, in order that,
just as Christ was raised from the
dead by the glory of the Father,
we too might walk in newness of life.
