“Once for All (Free from the Law)”

By Philip Bliss (1873)

Free from the law, O happy condition,
Jesus has bled and there is remission,
Cursed by the law and bruised by the fall,
Grace hath redeemed us once for all.

Once for all, O sinner, receive it,
Once for all, O brother, believe it;
Cling to the cross, the burden will fall,
Christ hath redeemed us once for all.

Now we are free, there’s no condemnation,
Jesus provides a perfect salvation.
“Come unto Me,” O hear His sweet call,
Come, and He saves us once for all.

“Children of God,” O glorious calling,
Surely His grace will keep us from falling;
Passing from death to life at His call;
Blessèd salvation once for all.

Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. Your posting of Philip Bliss’s “Once for All” caught my eye because I just posted an article on the song. It’s typical of Bliss’s work. Strong doctrinally, yet stated so simply. The law of God could condemn us, and give us the knowledge of sin, but it had no power to save. That took the cross. God bless.
