When anyone is in Christ,
there is a new creation:
the old is dead and gone.
Behold, the new has come.
Old evasions end,
and no one hides, or runs away;
the chain of blame is broken,
and men and women meet as friends.
Ancient curses fade:
the ring of power is melted down,
the sword becomes a plowshare,
and men are freed to laugh and love.
Old subjections fall:
the captives break the prison door;
the young and old see visions,
and women preach and prophesy.
The prince is kneeling at our feet,
the edge is at the center,
and little children lead us all.
