Listen to this song using Rhapsody (Free for 14 Days)

Yea, as I live, Jehovah Saith

Yea, as I live, Jehovah saith,
I would not have the sinnerís death,
But that he turn from errorís ways,
Repent, and live through endless days.

To us therefore Christ gave command:
ďGo forth and preach in every land;
Bestow on all My pardoning grace
Who will repent and mend their ways.

ďAll those whose sins ye thus remit
I truly pardon and acquit;
And those whose sins ye do retain
Condemned and guilty shall remain.

ďWhat ye shall bind, that bound shall be;
What ye shall loose, that shall be free;
Unto My church the keys are givín
To ope and close the gates of Heavín.Ē

The words which absolution give
Are His Who died that we might live;
The minister whom Christ has sent
Is but His humble instrument.

When ministers lay on their hands,
Absolved by Christ the sinner stands;
He who by grace the Word believes
The purchase of His blood receives.

All praise, eternal Son, to Thee
For absolution full and free,
In which Thou showest forth Thy grace;
From false indulgence guard our race.

Praise God the Father and the Son
And Holy Spirit, Three in One,
As ítwas, is now, and so shall be
World without end, eternity!
