Drinking Deeply

She must and shall go free

In church today they sang a most wonderful song, "She Must and Shall Go Free" (which seems to be listed as "Mercy Speaks by Jesus' Blood" for some reason). I love this song. It proclaims simply the power and sufficiency of Jesus' blood.

All her (the Church's) debts were cast on me (Christ), and she must and shall go free.

The debts are paid in full, there is now no condemnation. We are free from the bondage of sin and the debt of sin. Simply beautiful.

1. Mercy speaks by Jesus’ blood;
Hear and sing, ye sons of God;
Justice satisfied indeed;
Christ has full atonement made.

2. Jesus’ blood speaks loud and sweet;
Here all Deity can meet,
And, without a jarring voice,
Welcome Zion to rejoice,
Welcome Zion to rejoice.

Chorus: “All her debts were cast on Me,
And she must and shall go free.
All her debts were cast on Me,
And she must and shall go free.”

3. Peace of conscience, peace with God,
We obtain through Jesus’ blood;
Jesus’ blood speaks solid rest;
We believe, and we are blest.
We believe, and we are blest.
(Repeat chorus)

Bridge: Should the law against her roar,
Jesus’ blood still speaks with power,
“All her debts were cast on Me,
And she must and shall go free.
She must and shall go free.”
(Repeat chorus twice)

Tag: “And she must and shall go free,
And she must and shall go free,
And she must and shall go free.”
