Hymn/Song Information

BY THY DEATH WE LIVE




In vain we seek for peace with God,
By methods of our own;
Jesus, there's nothing but thy blood
Can bring us near the throne.


The threatenings of thy broken law
Impress the soul with dread;
If God the sword of justice draw,
It strikes the spirit dead.


But thine illustrious sacrifice
Hath answered these demands;
And peace and pardon from the skies
Came down from Jesus' hands.


Here all the ancient types agree,
The altar and the Lamb;
And prophets in their vision see
Salvation through his name.


'Tis by thy death we live, O Lord,
'Tis on thy cross we rest;
Forever be thy love adored
Thy name forever blest.


---Alternative verses---


In vain we seek for peace with God,
By methods of our own;
Blest Saviour! nothing but thy blood
Can bring us near the throne.


The threatenings of thy broken law
Impress the soul with dread;
If God the sword of vengeance draw,
It strikes the spirit dead.


But thy atoning sacrifice
Hath answered all demands;
And peace and pardon from the skies
Came to us by thy hands.


But thine atoning sacrifice
  Hath answered all demands; 
And peace and pardon from the skies 
Are offered by thy hands.
