The old has passed, we’ve been made new,
don’t turn back to the way it was before.
What once was dead, now has life;…
don’t long for deathly squalor.
You can’t turn back to the way it was before,
the wide road that leads to destruction.
To long for deathly squalor
is to wallow in corruption
Many choose the wide road to destruction;
Its ways are tempting, filled with debauchery and vice.
But to wallow in corruption now
is to reject the Savior’s love.
So much temptation: debauchery and vice,
But every temptation we now face,
He also did reject; the Savior’s love
for His Father saw each in it’s true light.
For every temptation we now face
Holy Spirit please renew our minds
For the Father has revealed true light
And to this we now have turned.
Holy Spirit please revive our hearts,
let us cast aside our burdens.
Into your loving embrace now we turn
We will run the race, we won’t turn back
For you carried to the cross our burdens
And bore the wrath due iniquity’s cost
Freed now, we run to you, we won’t turn back
Transform us with your glory
The old has passed, we are a new creation.
