I  The way to confirm discipleship

II  The content of the truth

III  The steps to freedom


Once I was dead in sin,
And hope within me died;
But now I’m dead to sin—
With Jesus crucified.

And can it be that “He loved me,
And gave himself for me?”

I live—and yet not I,
But Christ that lives in me;
Who from the law of sin
And death hath made me free.

He Loved Me, Philip Paul Bliss
