IN CHRIST WE ARE FREE
All children of wrath, in bondage and sin,
We helplessly lay, condemned and unclean:
God's law, in its infinite justice and wrath,
Demanded we suffer an eternal death.
But long before time had ever begun,
One stood in our place, God's glorious Son:
He offered Himself to go live among men,
And give His own life to atone for our sin.
The great Substitute, behold, He has come!
The price has been paid; the work is all done:
Christ took on Himself the great load of our sin-
He poured out His blood, and He put away sin.
God's justice and law are now satisfied,
And all who believe have been justified:
Through faith in the blood of the Lamb we are free,
From sin's condemnation, eternally free!
(Tune: O Worship the King)
