At Peace with God

Now through faith God approves,
For in Christ we have peace;
The darkness He removes,
Giving life a new lease.

Through Christ we approach God,
With both sorrow and praise;
Giving Him honor and laud,
With joyful tongues ablaze.

So brag in confidence,
The glory we receive;
Will be in abundance,
Because what we believe.

Brag about suffering,
For helping us endure;
To give a buffering,
Making your faith secure.

For what that we proclaimed,
Love pours into the heart;
And we are not ashamed,
Words from God we impart.

While we were still lost,
Christ died for our sin;
As He paid for the cost,
Letting new life begin.

Relationship restored,
Through the life of His Son,
For Jesus is the Lord,
From a Father we won.
