“In Him” Alone

 

Nothing, either great or small,

 

nothing, sinner no;

 

Jesus did it, did it all,

 

long, long ago.

 

 

When He from His lofty throne

 

stoop’d to do and die,

 

everything was fully done;

 

hearken to His cry —

 

 

‘It is finish’d!’ Yes indeed,

 

finish ‘d every jot.

 

Sinner, this is all you need;

 

tell me, is it not?

 

 

Weary, working, burden’d one,

 

why do you toil so?

 

Cease your doing; all was done

 

long, long ago.

 

 

Till to Jesus’ work you cling

 

by a simple faith,

 

‘doing’ is a deadly thing —

 

‘doing’ ends in death.

 

 

Cast your deadly ‘doing’ down —

 

down at Jesus’feet;

 

stand ‘in him,’ in Him alone,

 

gloriously complete!

 

 

Octavius Winslow
