Hymn of the Week: Once For All!

Also known by the title "Free From the Law," this hymn by Philip P. Bliss reminds us that salvation was provided "once for all" by Jesus Christ when He bled and died on the cross and rose from the dead.

But it is also a perfect salvation—it needs nothing else! No works nor any thing we can do provides us salvation, because Christ provides it—perfectly!

Rest happily in the knowledge that if you have accepted Christ's gift of salvation, it is yours forever.

Once For All! (Free From the Law)

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

Refrain

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.

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.

Refrain

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

Refrain
