Today's Hymn: Called to Separation

Called to Separation

Called to separation
With the Crucified,
Temples of the Spirit
Saved and sanctified,
Set apart for service,
By God’s hand ordained,
We the cross have taken,
By His love constrained.

Step by step with Jesus
All along life’s way,
Now the cross and conflict,
Then the perfect day.

Christ the veil has entered,
With the blood He shed,
Sin’s great debt is cancelled,
Love’s own feast is spread;
Now in Christ we’re chosen
Kings and priests to be,
Living offerings bringing,
His own blood our plea.

Like a boundless ocean
Ever rolling in,
Comes this flood of blessing,
Seeking lives to win;
Who such love can fathom,
From God’s heart which flows,
Or such grace e’er measure,
Which His hand bestows?

Pressing onward, upward,
Life grows pure and strong,
‘Tis the vision splendid
Saves from all that’s wrong;
In the steps of Jesus,
We would plant our own,
Blessèd path of triumph,
Leading to the throne.
