Put to death the worldly in you.
Perversion, passion, lust and greed;
In your heart to God just be true,
For He caters to what you need.
For these sins always anger God,
On those who refuse to obey;
Never showing honor and laud,
Because they rather go astray.
You used to live a sinful life,
As you lied to one another;
Being overwhelmed with the strife,
And you were blaming the Father.
You have gotten rid of the one,
How you used to be with living;
Then came the cross that held the Son,
So God could then be forgiving.
You became a new creation,
Renewed mind of its Creator;
Since through Christ you have salvation,
For God is the Expiator.
The Father sees no Jew or Greek,
Nor a color of any kind;
He only sees people that seek,
Having a pure and holy mind.
Holy people God selected,
Are sympathetic and humble;
While others are rejected,
Because they complain and grumble.
You must tolerate each other,
An ability to forgive;
So please pardon one another,
For in harmony you must live.
Let the peace of Christ control you,
As the Word of Christ brings wisdom;
His richness living each day through,
As you prepare for His Kingdom.
Sing onto the Lord in your heart,
With all that you say and you do;
As your hands and your mouth impart,
Heavenly views your thoughts construe.
