Sanctification and Pardon
'Can rocks or mountains save?
Of midnight and the grave?
Of a revenging God?
Bedew us with thy blood. 7;
And wash away our sin ; ; ..
And conscience smiles within.
That cleanses every stain;
If sin, the tyrant, reign, .
That cursed throne must fall; ;'. Ye flattering plagues, that work our death, . Fly, for we hate you all."
