We only die once–and just as surely Jesus was only sacrificed once. The sinner’s debt paid once for all.

24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: 25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; 26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.(KJV)

1. Once He came in blessing, 
All our ills redressing; 
Came in likeness lowly, 
Son of God most holy; 
Bore the cross to save us, 
Hope and freedom gave us. 

2. Still He comes within us, 
Still His voice would win us 
From the sins that hurt us; 
Would to Truth convert us 
From our foolish errors 
Ere He comes in terrors. 

3. Thus, if thou hast known Him, 
Not ashamed to own Him, 
But wilt trust Him boldly 
Nor dost love Him coldly, 
He will then receive thee, 
Heal thee, and forgive thee. 

4. He who thus endureth 
Bright reward secureth. 
Come, then, O Lord Jesus, 
From our sins release us; 
Let us here confess Thee 
Till in heaven we bless Thee.
