Martin from the Former Adventist Fellowship group in Redlands was driving me home and we got to talking about Romans Chapter 7. And I felt I needed a challange I guess because I felt like the Lord was leading me to write lyrics based on that passage.

So Martin folks here’s the lyrics to Romans 7 (Rise) as usual if you feel impressed to put them to music let me know they are open and free to use by all.

Romans 7 (Arise)

After the fall, we’re pointed to the Law; which points us simply to the Christ.

When we repent, He is heaven sent; the Spirit seals us and saves our lives.

Though we are saved, we’ve misbehaved; it is the sin that is still within us.

We wish we would, do what we should, yet we are filled with such disgust.

Through Christ the old man is dead.

Yet sin still rears its ugly head.

Through Christ the old man is dead.

Yet sin still rears its ugly head.

Through Christ…Arise!

What’s goin on, our sins are gone, as far away as the east is from the west.

And still we sin; it seems we cannot win, though we try to do our very best.

We want to cry, we don’t know why; this doesn’t seem to make a bit of sense.

We truly know, our lives do show, the Holy Spirit lives in these earthly tents.

Through Christ the old man is dead.

Yet sin still rears its ugly head.

Through Christ the old man is dead.

Yet sin still rears its ugly head.

Through Christ…Arise!

What we want to do, we do not do.

Oh Lord what are we going to do?

We’re going to trust our souls to you.

Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

We trust you through the Power of your Word.

Through Christ the old man is dead.

Yet sin still rears its ugly head.

Through Christ the old man is dead.

Yet sin still rears its ugly head.

Through Christ…Arise!

When He came down He suffered so, He knew that to the Cross He’d go.

And then He’d be placed in a tomb, knowing that He would rise up soon!

Through Christ…Arise!

Through Christ…Arise!

Through Christ…Arise!
