Phil P. Bliss sat down yesteryear and penned in simplicity, words that today ring sweet to the ear:
“Once For All (Free From The Law).” “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.”
The hymn is a tool that the good Lord uses, to get His children’s eyes back on His promises.
What are God’s promises? We forget so quickly. The whirl of the world, it’s noise and distractions, get our attention from the solid Rock that lays our foundation.
“Once for all, O sinner, receive it! Once for all, O brother believe it! Cling to the cross, the burden will fall; Christ hath redeemed us once for all!”
Cling to the cross instead of a host of other things, yet so oft we choose fear, rather the freedom the cross brings .
“Now are we 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.”
These words are amazing, so gloriously true, that they need to be repeated, and brought back ‘anew.’
“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, perhaps we’ll never sing this old hymn, and many of us have no idea the melody within,
But today with thankful hearts we’ll read it and agree, that these very words ‘lift us’ on wings.
Above the melancholy world, let us fly with faith, as our sight sees and believes impossible things.
No matter what happens, God is our Father. He knows our name. We are not forgotten . Let us remember: He’s still on the throne. No matter what – what’s going on!
“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.”
“Once for all, O sinner, receive it! Once for all, O brother, believe it!”
“Cling to the cross, the burden will fall; Christ hath redeemed us once for all!”
This is a hymn from days gone by, but the message is unchanging, for us all, for all time.
“Cling to the cross, the burden will fall; Christ has redeemed me once for all!”
