Hymn To 2nd Corinthians 5:17

Author: Sifiso Mtshali

 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come” (NIV)

 

Night and day, both night and day

In constant flight, there remained

Fleeing ills and hurt, hunger and strife

Torsos battered by the unforgiving world

Which charred us within, enslaving our souls

As we stand against each other, mankind divided

By diseases tormented, by envy chased

Our bodies delicacies to the consuming earth

As in a wayward path, blinded we went

By illusions consumed and by reason misguided

Today we rejoice!

He comes, our Savior hailed

Who is daily reborn in our hearts

He makes us wise, kind, and meek

Salvaging us from that dreaded pit

Where no peace down there reached

Until He came bearing good and light

Who unto us is renewed with glory

Those old imperfections are all done away

See us reborn with everything anew

Renewed and strong in greatness draped

Steadfast read and from our sacred scrolls

Alive with Him who from the heavens came

To make us new and love us without measure

Making us new while the old is gone away
