Good Morning Devo for 9.7.2021: “Free from the Law, O Happy Condition”

September 07 (JPG)

Free from the law, O happy condition, 
Jesus hath bled, and there is remission; 
Cursed by the law and bruised by the fall, 
Grace hath redeemed us once for all.

Chorus:
Once for all, O sinner, receive it, 
Once for all, O friend, now believe it; 
Cling to the cross, the burden will fall, 
Christ hath redeemed us once for all.

Now we are free, there’s no condemnation, 
Jesus provides a perfect salvation; 
“Come unto Me,” O hear His sweet call, 
Come, and He saves us once for all.

“Children of God,” O glorious calling, 
Surely His grace will keep us from falling; 
Passing from death to life at His call, 
Blessed salvation once for all.

–Philip P. Bliss (1838-1876)
