I gave My life for thee


I gave My life for thee,

My precious blood I shed,

That thou might ransomed be,

And quickened from the dead;

I gave, I gave My life for thee,

what hast thou giv’n me?

I suffered much for thee,

More than thy tongue can tell,

Of bitterest agony,

To rescue thee from hell;

I’ve borne, I’ve borne it all for thee,

What hast thou borne for Me?

_Frances Ridley Havergal

1 John 1:7 – “The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin”

“One of the intensest moments of my life was when I saw the force of that word “cleanseth,” the utter unexpected and altogether unimagined sense of its fulfillment to me, on simply believing it in its fullness, was just indescribable. I experienced nothing like it short of heaven.” _Frances R. Havergal
