My brothers, we are debtors not to flesh

In bondage to our bodies’ every wish;

No more has death our days within its mesh,

Our deeds ensnared by sin as netted fish.

The Spirit freeing us has snapped death’s net

That we may die to sin and freely live

As those not bound by death yet still in debt

To Life and by the Spirit bound to give

As we were given unto life and led

Away from slavery unto the king,

Unto adoption through the royal head

Whose crown upon the cross was suffering.

For by the tomb, the Spirit witness bears

Through second womb we are with Christ God’s heirs.

Freed from Death’s Snare to be God’s Heir (Romans 8:12-17)
