Christ's New Creations--Romans 7:24-8:39

I ask, who will save me
From this mortal coil
This body of death, flesh
Warring, sin and turmoil

I thank God the Father
There is no condemnation
To those who, in Christ,
Have been made new creations

Who no longer walk 
According to the flesh
But by God’s Spirit -
Alive and fresh

He has set us free
From sin and death
Revived us with
Resurrection breath

I was once crippled and weak
And stumbled and fell
He breathed life and peace
Now within me He dwells

Lead me, Spirit,
To the Father
Who has adopted me
My Abba Father

Conform me to 
The likeness of 
Jesus Christ
Full of truth and love

Love so great that it reaches
Beyond trials and distress,
Persecution, famine,
Peril, sword and nakedness

Neither death nor life,
The future or the past
Nothing in creation 
No power will surpass

Because of His love
We are more than victorious
Because His love is
Eternally glorious
