Blessed In Christ
By June Stein
How blessed we are to be in Christ
As planned through God’s provision,
Of ourselves we are not worthy
It’s come by Christ’s commission.
He came to earth to save mankind
As God the Father authored,
His pure and Holy only Son
The Lamb of God, was offered.
We could never be judged worthy
By some good that we might do,
For we all are natural sinners
There’s no help on earth in view.
Salvation Jesus offers us
Through His sacrificial Love,
He paid our ransom on the Cross
So that we can live above.
When we ask to be forgiven
We are welcomed by the Lord,
He knows all and still forgives us
As proclaimed in God’s own Word.
The love our Savior has for us
Is more than we could fathom,
Evermore we’ll love and praise Him
In His eternal Kingdom.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
