“She Must and Shall Go Free” January 12, 2007

Posted by larrylaz in Quotes.

Those who read this blog regularly know I like to post song lyrics now and then, and here are the words to a song by Derek Webb called, “She Must and Shall Go Free”. I believe at least a part, if not all, the words come from a hymn by a guy named William Gadsby but I don’t really have time to look!

What a glorious truth is declared here, that our works can never pay the debt that we owe to God for our sin and rebellion. But Christ has paid it all, and we need not try to pay Him back for paying it all!

Yes, that is a truth that is open to abuse. “What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?” Anyone who knows me knows that I am not what I am saying. But the more time I spend in the Church, the more I realize that it is very hard for people to actually believe the gospel. We do good deeds because we think we owe God, not because we are so filled with joy and love for the mercy that He has shown us.

Mercy speaks by Jesus’ blood
Hear and sing, ye sons of God
Justice satisfied indeed
Christ has full atonement made

Jesus’ blood speaks loud and sweet
Here all Diety can meet
And without a jarring voice
Welcome Zion to rejoice

“All her debts were cast on me
and she must and shall go free”

Peace of conscience, peace with God
We obtain through Jesus’ blood
Jesus’ blood speaks solid rest
We believe and we are blest

Should the law against her roar
Jesus’ blood still speaks with power
“All her debts were cast on me
and she must and shall go free”

May all God’s people believe and be blest by the Gospel. Let the truth of Christ’s full atonement set you free from guilt and shame and legalism,
