In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. (Ephesians 1:7-10 ESV)
Hymn ELH 17:1-2 Awake and Sing the Song
Awake and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb;
Tune ev’ry heart and ev’ry tongue
To praise the Savior’s name.
Sing of His dying love,
Sing of His rising pow’r;
Sing how He intercedes above
For those whose sins He bore.
Lord Jesus, You have redeemed me through Your blood. Help me always to be thankful for the sacrifice You made to pay for my sins and for the sins of all. Amen.
