200. Once We Stood in Condemnation

by G.W. Frazer
Once we stood in condemnation,
Waiting thus the sinner's doom,
Christ in death has wrought salvation,
God has raised Him from the tomb.
John 3:18; Romans 5:8-9; Acts 13:29-30
As strangers then to God we lived,
Filled with enmity and fear;
Our souls from death He has reprieved,
Love revealed and brought us near.
Ephesians 2:12,19; Romans 5:10; Romans 8:15; John 5:24; 2 Corinthians 1:10; Ephesians 2:13
Now we see in Christ's acceptance
But the measure of our own;
Him who lay beneath our sentence,
Seated high upon the throne.
Ephesians 1:6; Romans 4:25; Hebrews 8:1
Quickened, raised, and in Him seated,
We a full deliverance know;
Every foe has been defeated,
Every enemy laid low.
Ephesians 2:5-6; Colossians 1:13; Exodus 14:30
Now we have a life in union
With the risen life above;
Now we drink in sweet communion
Some rich foretaste of His love.
Colossians 3:3; 1 John 1:3
Soon, O Lord, in brightest glory,
All its vastness we'll explore;
Soon we'll cast our crowns before Thee,
Whilst we worship and adore.
Revelation 4:10-11
