John 8:31-36 (Listen)

The Truth Will Set You Free

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 465 : Christ Is Our Corner-Stone Hymnary.org link

1. Christ is our Corner-Stone, 
On Him alone we build; 
With His true saints alone 
The courts of heaven are filled. 
On His great love 
Our hopes we place 
Of present grace 
And joys above. 

2. Oh, then, with hymns of praise 
These hallowed courts shall ring; 
Our voices we will raise 
The three in One to sing 
And thus proclaim 
In joyful song, 
Both loud and long. 
That glorious name. 

3. Here, gracious God, do Thou 
Forevermore draw nigh; 
Accept each faithful vow 
And mark each suppliant sigh. 
In copious shower 
On all who pray 
Each holy day, 
Thy blessing pour. 

4. Here may we gain from heaven 
The grace which we implore, 
And may that grace, once given, 
Be with us evermore 
Until that day 
When all the blest 
To endless rest 
Are called away!
