Dead Reckoning Lyrics

Artist: Petra
Album: This Means War!

Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on Romans 6:11, Galatians 2:20

It's a new day at last, but you're sinking so fast
If left up to your head, you'd remember the past
But a new day has come and new life has begun
Let the old pass away, reconsider it done
There's got to be a reckoning
When you feel the Spirit beckoning

(Chorus)
It's a dead reckoning
Trade the old for the new
It's a dead reckoning
Learn to die daily till the new life comes through
It's a dead reckoning

You've got nothing to lose but you do have to choose
When the Spirit says yes but the flesh wil lrefuse
And although you feel odd there are many who trod
Till they're dead to the world but alive unto God
Some still believe it can't be done
To the steady the race is still won

And the battle is already through
And it's hard to believe but it's true
On a hill long ago where the blood runs below
Died a King, two thieves, and you
