62*. I Am Not Told to Labor

7,6.
1
I am not told to labor
 
To put away my sin;
 
So foolish, weak and helpless,
 
I never could begin.
 
But blessèd truth—I know it!
 
Though ruined by the fall,
 
Christ for my soul hath suffered,
 
Yes, Christ has done it all!
Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Titus 3:3; Psalm 6:2
2
And if I now would seek Him—
 
In love He sought for me,
 
When far from Him I wandered
 
In sin and misery;
 
He oped my ears and gave me
 
To listen to His call;
 
He sought me and He found me,
 
Yes, Christ has done it all!
Luke 15:4-6
3
And now I cannot please Him
 
In aught I say or do,
 
Unless He daily help me
 
His glory to pursue;
 
Still helpless and still feeble,
 
On His strong arm I fall,
 
My strength in pressing onward—
 
Yes, Christ has done it all!
John 15:5
4
And when in heavenly glory
 
My ransomed soul shall be,
 
From sin and all pollution
 
Forever, ever free,
 
I'll cast my crown before Him,
 
And loud His grace extol—
 
"Thou hast Thyself redeemed me;
 
Yes, Thou hast done it all."
Revelation 4:10-11; Revelation 5:9
