Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Buried with Christ, I have died to my sin; A new life now fills me where evil had been. Transferred from darkness to Heaven’s domain, My living is Christ and my dying is gain.
Verse 2: Living for Jesus, conformed to His cross, The pleasures of sin I am counting as loss. Dying each day unto all things profane, My living is Christ and my dying is gain.
Verse 3: Living, my gladness is serving the Lord, And dying, His presence shall be my reward. Joyful and blest should I die or remain, My living is Christ and my dying is gain.
