1. Once I stood in condemnation,
      Waiting thus the sinner’s doom;
    Christ in death has wrought salvation,
      God has raised Him from the tomb.
    Once I was to God a stranger,
      Filled with enmity and fear;
    He has rescued me from danger,
      Love revealed and brought me near.
    He has rescued me from danger,
      Love revealed and brought me near.
  2. Now I see in Christ’s acceptance
      But the measure of my own;
    He who lay beneath my sentence,
      Seated high upon the Throne.
    Quickened, raised, and in Him seated,
      I a full deliverance know;
    Every foe has been defeated,
      Every enemy laid low,
    Every foe has been defeated,
      Every enemy laid low.
  3. Now I have a life in union
      With the risen Lord above;
    Now I drink in sweet communion
      Some rich foretaste of His love.
    Soon, O Lord! in highest glory,
      All its vastness I’ll explore;
    Soon I’ll cast my crown before Thee,
      While I worship and adore,
    Soon I’ll cast my crown before Thee,
      While I worship and adore.
