“Accepted in the Beloved.”—Ephesians 1:6.
“Perfect in Christ Jesus.”—Colossians 1:28.
“Complete in Him.”—Colossians 2:10.
Accepted, Perfect, and Complete,
For God’s inheritance made meet!
How true, how glorious, and how sweet!
In the Belovèd—by the King
Accepted, though not anything
But forfeit lives had we to bring.
And Perfect in Christ Jesus made,
On Him our great transgressions laid,
We in His righteousness arrayed.
Complete in Him, our glorious Head,
With Jesus raised from the dead,
And by His mighty Spirit led!
O blessèd Lord, is this for me!
Then let my whole life henceforth be
One Alleluia-song to Thee!
