Civilla D. Martin (1866–1948)


In the Be­loved ac­cept­ed am I,
Risen, as­cend­ed, and seat­ed on high;
Saved from all sin thro’ His in­fi­nite grace,
With the re­deemed ones ac­cord­ed a place.


In the Be­loved, God’s mar­vel­ous grace
Calls me to dwell in this won­der­ful place;
God sees my Sav­ior, and then He sees me,
In the Be­loved, ac­cept­ed and free.

In the Be­loved—how safe my re­treat,
In the Be­loved ac­count­ed com­plete;
Who can con­demn me? In Him I am free,
Savior and Keep­er for­ev­er is He.


In the Be­loved I went to the tree,
There, in His Per­son, by faith I may see
Infinite wrath roll­ing ov­er His head,
Infinite grace, for He died in my stead.
