3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.(KJV)

1. Arm these Thy soldiers, mighty Lord, 
With shield of faith and Spirit’s sword. 
Forth to the battle may they go 
And boldly fight against the Foe. 

2. With banner of the Cross unfurled, 
They overcome the evil world 
And so at last receive from Thee 
The palm and crown of victory. 

3. Come, ever-blessed Spirit, come 
And make Thy servants’ hearts Thy home, 
May each a living temple be 
Hallowed forever, Lord, to Thee. 

4. Enrich that temple’s holy shrine 
With sevenfold gifts of grace divine; 
With wisdom, light, and knowledge bless, 
With counsel, strength, fear, godliness. 

5. O Trinity in Unity, 
One only God and Persons Three, 
In whom, through whom, by whom, we live, 
To Thee we praise and glory give. 

6. Oh, grant us so to use Thy grace 
That we may see Thy glorious face 
And ever with the heavenly host 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
