"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

Psalm 88; Psalm 77; John 20:19-23

like those whom you remember no more,
    for they are cut off from your hand.
