177 ~ Jesus, Your Blood and Righteousness


Jesus, Your blood and righteousness My beauty are, my glorious dress; Mid flaming worlds, in these arrayed, With joy shall I lift up my head.


Bold shall I stand in that great day, Cleansed and redeemed, no debt to pay; For by Your cross, absolved I am From sin and guilt, from fear and shame.


Lord, I believe Your precious blood, Which at the mercy seat of God Pleads for the captives' liberty, Was also shed in love for me.


When from the dust of death I rise To claim my mansion in the skies, This then shall be my only plea: Christ Jesus lived and died for me.
