“Dead to This and Alive to That”

written by: Victor P.

“Dead to This and Alive to That”

Dead to this!
Watch it fade to powerless.
Dead to this!
Watch it bleed to lifeless.

Dead to temporal;
Alive to eternal.
Dead to this thing inferior;
Alive to something greater.

Buried, to resurrect as the thing new.
Risen, transforming whole, daily renew.
Daily buried, daily born once more to say:
Daily die, daily made alive, the new way.

Mortify the vile kind dwelling inside,
Oh, let nought vile within to reside!

The harrowing of this temple was a necessary event –
It was imperative to the bringing of a gift heaven-sent.

Arising with new life after unseen hands take the reins.
The blood of life was injected into these bloodless veins.
Liberation has been wrought by an unseen entity
And redemption has paved the way to eternity.
