This hymn was written to remind us with our faith towards God. We knew from the starts, when our relationship with God connected, that was the time when we heard and believed the Gospel of what God has done for us. He died at the cross for you and me and His blood shaded as a ransomed for many. For without the shading of His blood there is no remission of sins. This was the greatest message I ever heard and that was done because of God’s love. The reasons why we are still alive and enjoy life it is because of Him. That is why the longer we serve Him, the sweeter it goes.
