Dirty, Rotten, Flesh

by Paul Mayes Jamar

How can God bring life to rescue,
What is rotten, ruined, and smelly too.

Yet we are an example of His resurrection power,
We are dead in the flesh, and now are a spring flower.

Growing with new life from our godly Creator of love,
Through His Son Jesus Christ who now lies above.

Come forth dear saint, and live the abundant life,
That is found in Jesus Christ, not in a lost low life.

Yes we were rotten in sin, on the verge of ruin,
Till Jesus we asked in our lives, and we grew then.

Just as Jesus called Lazarus from the tomb,
Restoring him to life from stinky flesh, and doom.

Jesus calls you now to come forth, His way,
Ask Him to save you, and choose Heaven to soon stay.

Then disregard that smelly fleshly power over you,
You’re a new creature now with God’s Spirit all new.
