For once and for always; forever we have been saved
So extraordinary a price for us that Jesus Christ paid
He made Himself a guilt offering for us at the Cross
Perfect, Holy Lamb slain; He willingly paid the cost
While once we were dead in sin, He raised us to life
Brought us out of darkness into His Everlasting Light
Broken, brittle hearts; He fashioned completely new
Blind, dark minds; He opened to the purity of Truth
Once we were searching; we found our hope in Him
Once we were empty; now His Spirit resides within
Hebrews 7:25 (NASB)
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
John 10:27-29 (NASB)
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
On the wings of anticipation
Hope of eternity takes flight
Brings joy in the morning
Peace in the deep of night
Our Savior’s sweet, gentle voice
Draws us even nearer to Him
Walking together, side by side
Earth quickly fades, grows dim
Heart and mind yearn
To hear the call Home
In a brief instant of time
Forever at His Throne
Romans 8:25 (NASB)
But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.
II Corinthians 5:1-2 (NASB)
1 For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven
