If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Within and without, He lives
He has conquered death
Not to have a second death
But to bring a new life
Free from sin and strife
Set before us always is a new life and an old death
A choice between the things above and the things on earth
Between the permanent and the transient
What is to come and what is at its end
He is risen
Above and beyond sin
Rise above with Him
Choose the things that glorify Him
