Rick Swartzentrover


I have a battle raging within me
  A battle of breath and dust
A battle of heaven and hell
  A battle of sinner and saint


Only one man can survive
  It’s a match to the death
He was here first
  But I shall be standing last


He was born in 61
  I was born in 76
He is the Old Man
  I am the New Man


I believe that I have killed him
  I think I have crucified his flesh
But like a hand out of the grave
  He grabs hold of me and refuses to let go


Every nail I pound into his flesh
  He brakes with the power of will
Every stone I roll across his grave
  He moves with the power sin


Who can deliver the final death blow?
  Who can break the power of will and sin?
Who can set me free?
  Non other then Jesus Himself


I have been crucified with Christ
  and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.
The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God,
  who loved me and gave himself for me.
