Standing as humans and regarding, Christ whom you once had come to know,
doesn’t advance, but is retarding, since now you’re in the spirit’s flow.
Trust that you’ve been created new. Ev-ry-thing else is diff-rent, too.
Through Christ we’re reconciled to God who gave us a ministry to do.
To likewise reconcile ourselves to neighbors, reaching out with forgiveness, too.
T’was for our sake that God had made, the sinless who took our shape.
