#217: Jesus, Thy Blood and Righteousness

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness My beauty are, my glorious dress;

‘Midst flaming world, in these arrayed, With joy shall I lift up my head.

2

Bold shall I stand in Thy great day, For who aught to my charge shall lay?

Fully absolved thru these I am, From sin and fear, from guilt and shame.

3

Lord, I believe Thy precious blood, Which at the mercy-seat of God

Forever doth for sinners plead, For me, e’en for my soul was shed.

4

Lord, I believe were sinners more Than sands upon the ocean shore,

Thou hast for all a ransom paid, For all a full atonement made.
