Sing praise to Christ Who lives in us

1
Sing praise to Christ Who lives in us,
The God of our salvation;
Who saves us by His life divine,
And not by regulation;
After we’ve worked—done all we can,
His life has power to change a man:
His life divine can change us.
2
He saves us to the uttermost
By His life-giving power;
Transfusing Himself into us,
He saves us hour by hour.
He saved the lost by coming in,
He’s saving now from more than sin:
He’s saving us to glory!
3
Our Lord was constituted priest
To be a real life-giver;
Life is the nature of this One
Who can from self deliver:
His life is indestructible,
By it He saves us to the full:
Praise God, He’s fully able!
4
His life is fully qualified
To bring us through to glory;
Were it not for His tested life,
’Twould be another story
His life was fully tried on earth,
To crucifixion from His birth:
He passed through death and Hades.
5
He’s pledged to save us to the full,
His life is operating;
He’s doing everything for us
’Tis all for our perfecting;
Our life’s a failure at its best,
Only His life can stand the test:
His life brings full salvation!
6
He’s living now to intercede,
Continuing forever;
He undertakes into the age,
His priesthood changes never;
He always lives to intercede,
Such a High Priest is what we need:
He’s higher than the heavens.
7
Come forward now to God through Him,
Ne’er shrink back to destruction;
Come forward now to get the life,
Which brings the proper function;
Come forward now the life to take,
By life His people us He’ll make,
And swallow death forever.

Hallelujah for the Lord's life in us! The Lord Jesus is so worthy of our praises! His life divine saves us to the uttermost, hour by hour, saving us from more than sin - from our self, our murmurings, reasonings, and everything both negative and positive that issues from the tree of knowledge!

I enjoy verse 5:

He's pledged to save us to the full,

His life is operating;

He's doing everything for us

'Tis all for our perfecting;

Our life's a failure at its best,

Only His life can stand the test:

His life brings full salvation!

I just have to praise the Lord - only His life can stand the test, only His life brings full salvation! Hallelujah - my life is a failure at its best! This is wonderful, although our life is a failure, His life can stand the test - Jesus is our victory! He is the wonderful One now operating in us and doing everything for us so that He may further perfect the mingled life within and carry out His full salvation which He pledged to us!

Oh Lord, may we put aside all our vain efforts and LET Your life operate freely in us. May we obey this wonderful, inner-operating God whose very life is fully able to save us to the uttermost! What a wonderful Saviour is Jesus Christ our Lord!
