From Death to Life - Christian Poem



Evil lurks within,
Closely linked with sin.
We may say we're good,
Doing all we should,
Or at least we try--
But that claim's a lie.
We have all gone wrong,
Sung the devil's song.
We have all been blind,
Wicked, dead, unkind.
Simple self-reform
Will not change our norm.
We must be made new,
Changed in all we do.
Only Christ can give
What we need to live...
Spirit sees its morn
Once we've been reborn.

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience--among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.
--Ephesians 2:1-3
