Who is that dead man?

dead to sin

*****

Who is that who dwelt in sin?
Whom the Lord died to save
Isn’t it me, a man once dead
Yet I am no longer that man
So I wonder, who is that dead man?
*****
The man you once knew as me
That man is dead; dead and buried
When the Lord was slain at Calvary
So that man also died in His baptism
I wonder which dead man now you see!
*****
What’s now in me is new life
A new creation,  a new man
Saved by blood, justfied by grace
I cannot live in sin any more
For that dead man is no longer me
*****
So who is this that who continues to sin?
Who would dare walk in that path again?
Is such a man not already dead to their sin?
Why then walk in the way shunned before?
Who is that dead man, still dead in his sin?
*****
By consideration of the price paid at Calvary
By the acceptance of His saving grace
I can dwell in sin no longer, I simply can’t
For like Christ I pursue righteousness
And I am no longer the dead man of sin
