The Day I Died

on

This is a song that I wrote over the summer.  I know that it sounds a bit morbid, but it is based off of Romans 6:4-11:

~

“Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.  For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin.  Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him.  For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.  Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

The Day I Died

~

The day I died, God washed me clean

With the crimson blood of Christ

He made me spotless in His sight

And now I truly live

~

The day I died, I died to death

Jesus triumphed o’er the grave

And new life to sinners gave

Oh, now I truly live

~

Chorus:

And now I truly live!

For my Savior lives in me

And now I truly live!

My life He will ever be

~

The day I died, I came alive

As I died with Christ to sin,

So also was I raised with Him

And now I truly live

~

The day I died, I was freed

From darkness, fear of death

Enslaved to Him who is my Life

And now I truly live

~

Chorus

~

The day I died, I came alive

And now I truly live

~

Not meant to be morbid at all, but utterly, completely, abandondly joyful.  Praise be to God for His unspeakable Gift!
