200. Once We Stood in Condemnation

8,7.
by G.W. Frazer
1
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
2
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
3
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
4
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
5
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
6
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.
