Once We Stood In Condemnation

by G.W. Frazer

Tune: Stuttgart
* Verses 1,4,5,6

Tune: Suffield

1 ONCE we stood in condemnation
Waiting thus the sinner's doom,
Christ in death hath wrought salvation,
God has raised Him from the tomb.

2 Strangers then to God we lived,
Filled with enmity and fear;
Souls from death He has reprieved,
Love revealed and brought us near.

3 Now we see in Christ's acceptance
But the measure of our own;
Him who lay beneath our sentence,
Seated high upon the throne.

4 Quickened, raised, and in Him seated;
We a full deliverance know;
Every foe has been defeated,
Every enemy laid low.

5 Now we have a life in union
With the risen life above;
Now we drink in sweet communion
Some rich foretaste of His love.

6 Soon, O Lord, in brightest glory,
All its vastness we'll explore;
Soon we'll cast our crowns before Thee,
Whilst we worship and adore.
