Salvation Through The Son

orchidee



Tune: Ratisbon

('Christ whose glory fills the skies')

Romans 5 v.6-11

*******

For when we no strength did have

Christ in due time came to save

He died for the ungodly

To bring us to God, so be

For scarcely for righteous man

Will one die, e'en if they can

 

Perhaps for a good man some

Would even dare to die, come

With a willingness of heart

To give life up, every part

But God commends His love to

Us, that we may see, e'en you

 

For while we were yet sinners

Christ died for us, grace confers

On us, much more then being

Justified by Him, we sing

That by His blood we shall be

Saved from wrath eternally

 

For if, when we enemies

Were reconciled, truth agrees

To God by death of His Son

He the holy, sinless One

Much more, now we reconciled

Shall be saved, by His life styled

 

Not only this, but we too

Rejoice in God now anew

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, He

The one by whom we have, see

Now received the atonement

We forgiven, repentant

            My mother was devout and would cherish your writes. I read from her point of view and I honor her as I set aside my skeptic habit. Back to that kind discussion on a different day.
