"Oh! The Peace Forever Flowing"
OH! the peace for ever flowing
From God's thoughts of His own Son,
Oh, the peace of simply knowing,
On the cross that all was done.
Peace with God, for Christ in Heaven
Object is of faith to me:
Peace with God! the Lord is risen!
Righteousness now counts me free.
Peace with God --- for Christ's in glory,
God is just and God is love;
Oh! how blessed is the story,
That we're brought to God above.
Now free access to the Father,
Through the Christ of God, we have;
By the Spirit here abiding,
Promise of the Father's love.
Jesus, Saviour, we adore Thee!
Christ of God --- Anointed Son;
We confess Thee, Lord of glory,
Fruits of victory Thou hast won!
~By Lord Adalbert Percy Cecil (1841-1889)~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by
the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
The Lord Jesus provided the way of redemption by shedding His precious
blood for our sins at the cross of Calvary. We have peace with God the
Father, through the Lord Jesus Christ! What a glorious thought!-- That our
sins are washed away and that we now have fellowship with the Heavenly Father! What a glorious thought!-- that we have a risen Savior-- Who sits
in glory at the right hand of the Father-- and Who intercedes on our behalf.
And very soon, He shall return for His Bride-- the Church-- and shall take
us away to be with Him forever. What a glorious day that will be. It is not
just a speculation but a reality. The Lord Jesus is coming back! He promised
us that He would return one day and He shall! For now, we journey and by
His power, we live and move and have our being. In His power, we do the
things He enables us to do. We rest in His finished work at Calvary and we
have peace in our hearts because peace is only found in Christ Jesus!
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you
faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only
wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power,
both now and ever. Amen.
