Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.@Romans 10:4

Philip P. Bliss, The Charm, 1871 (MIDI, NWC, PDF).

Just be­fore Christ­mas, 1871, Mrs. Bliss asked a friend, What shall I get for my hus­band as a Christ­mas pre­sent? and, at the sug­gest­ion of this friend, pur­chased and pre­sent­ed him with the bound vol­ume of a month­ly Eng­lish per­i­od­ic­al called Things New and Old. Ma­ny things in these books of in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Script­ure and il­lus­tra­tions of Gospel truth were blessed to him, and from the read­ing of some­thing in one of these books…sug­gest­ed this glor­i­ous Gos­pel song.

Philip P. Bliss (1838-1876)

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

Children of God, O glorious calling,
Surely His grace will keep us from falling;
Passing from death to life at His call;
Blessèd salvation once for all.
