P. 87

Heaven; pilgrimage; redemption
NO LONGER NOW, as once we were, rebellious and defiled,
for ours is all that God has done
in sending us his only Son,
our life restored, our freedom won, redeemed and reconciled.
2 No longer slaves to sin and death but now by grace forgiven,
as those whom God delights to bless, and clothed in Jesus’ righteousness, his ransomed children shall possess
the flower-strewn fields of heaven.
3 No longer now before us lies a dark and cloudy way;
the upward path of life we tread,
a light of glory round us shed, who follow where the Lord has led
to everlasting day.
