From below to atop the waters

Raised with Christ
in our dying, resurrection
rising with him from the depths
the pit of our past
through the waters, baptism
new in him, in Christ
alive in the light

From below the waves,
the depths, the grave
to atop the waters
walking on the waves
following Christ
carrying our cross
our path of sacrifice

Through the curtain
the membrane
the divide from heaven and earth
through the surface
in union with Christ
raised through surface
going from life into life
