How Can A Sinner Know – St. Michael

How can a sinner know
His sin on earth forgiven
How can my gracious Savior show
My name inscribed in heaven?

What we have felt and seen
With confidence we tell;
And publish to the sons of men
The signs infallible.

We who in Christ believe
That he for us hath died,
We all his unknown peace receive,
And feel his blood applied.

Exults our rising soul,
Disburdn’d of her load,
And swells, unutterably full
Of glory and of God.

His love, surpassing far
The love of all beneath,
We find within our hearts, and dare
The pointless darts of death.

Stronger than death or hell
The sacred power we prove;
And, conqu’rors of the world, we dwell
In heaven, who dwell in love
