By God’s Will We’ve Been Sanctified (For March 25)

By God’s will we’ve been sanctified, in what was done by Christ.

His body offered once for all. He made the sacrifice.

—–

Animal blood cannot suffice, to take away our sin.

Such off-er-ings God does not want, neither takes pleasure in.

—–

Jesus has come to do God’s will, as long ago was writ.

Wiping away the former law, making an end of it.

—–

By God’s will we’ve been sanctified, in what was done by Christ.

His body offered once for all. He made the sacrifice.
