Risen With Christ



Are you risen with Christ, my friend?
Has He washed away your sin?
Does His Spirit dwell within?
Then set your affections above,
Live in His goodness and love…
Seeking that which is above…
If ye are Risen With Christ.

There is kingdom work to be done,
A race on earth to be won,
Others need to know God’s Son.
Take with you faith’s strong, mighty shield,
And to the tempter do not yield…
By God’s Spirit, you are sealed…
If ye are Risen With Christ.

One day we’ll see the Master’s face,
And give account in that place
Of works done since saved by grace.
Oh, let us work while there is time,
And to new heights let us climb…
Till we reach glory sublime…
If ye are Risen With Christ.


 “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things
above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory.”
(Col 3:1 - 4)
