FORGIVENESS THROUGH THE ATONEMENT




My crimes, oh God, for vengeance call,
Stern justice lifts its hand,
Ready to strike the fatal blow,
And waits but thy command.


Bending before thy throne of grace,
I make my humble moan;
But prayers, confessions, sighs and tears,
Can ne’er for sin atone.


The numerous duties I perform,
Only increase my guilt;
‘Tis blood must cleanse my crimson stains,
The blood which Jesus spilt.


To that dear fountain, Lord, I’ll flee,
To wash my nature clean;
And thither would I oft repair,
Till freed from every sin.
