Ephesians 5: 19; Colossians 3: 16
Verse 1: Redeemed by blood of Him who died, Redeemed by Christ the crucified; Forgiven, freed, and justified, adopted, saved and sanctified. He died for you, He died for me, He died for sin to set us free. He died to rescue all who fall. He suffered, bled and died for all.
Verse 2: The tomb was empty on that day, The sealed stone was rolled away. Peter and John could see inside the garments folded, laid aside; Five hundred saw the risen Lord, the Son of God, to life restored. He reigns, a priest upon His throne. The blood He offers is His own.
Verse 3: He is my Savior and my Lord. His bloodstained cross I now adore. He is my Prophet, Priest and King. His praises gladly I will sing. I live to see His blessed face; To know the fulness of His grace. I live in Him, He lives in me; His true disciple I will be.
