FREE FROM THE LAW

Philip Paul Bliss (1838-1876) was an American gospel singer and hymn-writer.
He wrote some of our best hymns, among them being, “Let the Lower Lights Be Burning,” “Hold the Fort,” “Windows Open Toward Jerusalem,” “Free from the Law,” “Only an Armour-Bearer,” “Pull for the Shore, Sailors,” “The Light of the World is Jesus,” “Whosoever Will,” “Almost Persuaded,” “I Am So Glad that Jesus Loves Me,” “Hallelujah, ‘Tis Done,” “The Half Was Never Told,” and many others.

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.

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.

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