Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Consenting was Jesus, to leave all His glory, To come to the earth from His Father up there; To come with His love and His grace and be hated, Despised tho’ His goodness was seen ev’rywhere.
Verse 2: Consenting to death that His blood be my cleansing, For joy I must cry for the feeling within; A feeling of trust that His grace be sufficient, To take all my sorrows, and cleanse me from sin.
Verse 3: To cleanse even you that your soul be not wanting, As out of the heavens we see Him descend; Saying, come ye, my children, There’s waiting a mansion, there’s joy in My Kingdom, that never shall end.
Chorus: Because He consented, Bcause He consented, My soul may rejoice that He sanctified me; Because He consented, Because He consented, My sins are all taken and I may go free.
