Put to death your sexual sin,
Perversion, passion, lust and greed;
That is corrupting you within,
With the immorality seed.
It is because of all who sinned,
God is angry who will refuse;
For those who are not disciplined,
And have been willing to abuse.
You use to live that kind of life,
With anger, hatred, and cursing;
As you become burdened with strife,
As you continue coercing.
Do not lie to one another,
Get rid of who you use to be;
Living life to be a brother,
Become a new person to see.
The new person will be renewed,
For being like its Creator;
By the Lord be always reviewed,
Being an officiator.
For there will be no Greek or Jew,
Circumcised or uncircumcised;
Regardless of what you might do,
Civilized or uncivilized.
As holy people that God chose,
Are loved, sympathetic, and kind;
Be gentle and patient by those,
Humbled having a peace of mind.
Tolerate others and forgive,
Pardon as the Lord forgave you;
Be harmonious how you live,
Ensuring that you remain true.
Be loving to tie together,
As the peace of Christ controls you;
Flocking like birds of a feather,
Regardless as Christian or Jew.
The Word of Christ with its wisdom,
As the richness to live within;
Preparing you for His Kingdom,
Building spiritual discipline.
