English Hymn 81
Jesu, Thy blood and righteousness
My beauty are, my glorious dress;
Midst flaming world in there arrayed.
With joy shall I lift up my head.
Bold shall I stand in thy great day;
For who aught Tommy charge shall lay?
Fully absolved through these I am,
From sin and fear, from guilt and shame.
The holy, meek, unspotted Lamp,
Who from the Father’s bosom came,
Who died for me, even me, atone,
Now for my Lord and God I own.
Lord, I believe Thy precious blood,
Which at the mercy-seat of God
For ever doth for sinners plead,
For me, even for my soul, was shed.
When from the dust of death I rise
To claim my mansion in the skies,
Even then this shall be my plea
Jesus hath lived, hath died for me!
Jesu, be endless praise to Thee,
Whose boundless mercy hath for me,
For me and all Thy hands have made,
An everlasting ransom paid.
Lord, I believe, were sinners more
Than sands upon the ocean shore,
Thou hath for all a ransom paid,
For all a full atonement made.
Ah! Give to all Thy servants, Lord,
With power to speak Thy gracious word,
That all who to Thy wounds will flee,
May find eternal life in Thee.
Thou god of power, Thou God of love,
Let the whole world Thy mercy prove!
Now let Thy word o’er all prevail;
Now take the spoils of death and hell.
O let the dead now hear Thy voice,
Now bid Thy banished ones rejoice,
Their beauty this, their gracious dress,
Jesu, Thy blood and righteousness!
