I Am Not Told To Labor

By A. Midlane (1825-1909)

Meter: 7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.

I AM not told to labor
To put away my sin;
So foolish, weak, and helpless,
I never could begin.
But blessed truth—I know it—
Though ruined by the fall,
Christ for my soul hath suffered,
Yes, Christ has done it all!

And if I now would seek Him—
In love He sought for me,
When far from Him I wandered
In sin and misery;
He ope'd my ears, and gave me
To listen to His call;
He sought me, and He found me,
Yes, Christ has done it all!

And when in heav'nly glory
My ransomed soul shall be,
From sin and all pollution
For ever, ever free,
My soul shall then still praise Him,
And loud His grace extol—
Thou hast Thyself redeemed me;
Yes, Thou hast done it all!
