Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: O new child of Jesus how glorious, To leave the dark pathway behind. To follow the path straight and even, Where love and salvation you’ll find.
Verse 2: By faith in our Lord are you risen From sin by the blood of the Lamb. All hath been made well in your being, By none but the Gracious “I Am.”
Coda: You’ve cast away the ways of the world, You’ve cast off the darkness of sin. Adorn now the Spirit of truth. Serve none but our Lord to the end.
Verse 3: O new child of Jesus how precious, Your soul in the eyes of our King. The angels rejoice high up yonder, The heavens with gladness doth ring.
