Our old man has been crucified with Christ

1
Our old man has been crucified with Christ;
Yes, all we are in oldness He sufficed
To bring to naught upon the cross that He
Himself as our new Husband fully be
    Enjoyed by us.
2
Yes, all our strength of independence died,
For we with Christ were fully crucified.
Now we’re so glad to be His proper wife,
Dependently enjoying Him as life
    Forevermore.
3
Our dying was not such a sad affair,
The new man was rejoicing to be there;
The old man dead and buried, we were free
To marry Christ, and live eternally,
    His wife, fore’er.
4
Now as the new, regenerated man,
We do two things, according to God’s plan:
Bear fruit to God and serve in spirit new
So God becomes the fruit of all we do,
    And all we are.
5
There are three laws in Romans seven, see—
The law of God; the mind, the good old me;
The sinful law indwelling bodily;
Yet from these all the Lord has set us free,
    To live by Him.
6
In Romans eight the law of Spirit is,
Where we’re in Christ, and we are fully His,
The law of life has set us wholly free
And Christ becomes our life eternally,
    Hallelujah!

The wonderful place of being dead to ALL. New life

is my everlasting JOY. HE LIVES IN ME.

FREE FREE of myself and HE IS ALL and ALL to me.

Romans chapter 6 says, shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? certainly not, how shall we who died to sin, live any longer in it. Or do you not know, that he who dies in Christ, crucified with him. Therefore we were buried with him, through the baptism of dead. And as Christ was risen from the dead by the glory of the Father, we also shall walk in the newness of life. For our old man was crucified with him, that the body of sin may be done away with, that we should no longer slaves of sin. For he who die, has been freed from sin. And if we died in Christ, we believe we also shall live with him. Knowing that Christ having been raised from the dead, dies no more, death no longer has dominion over him. For the death the he dies, he dies to sin, and the life that he lives, he lives to God. Amen, Amen, Amen.
