2 He laid his glory by, JESUS, my Lord, my God!

That rebels, such as you and I,
The God supreme thou art,
The Lord of hosts whose precious blood

From wrath might be secur'd.

Our debt of sin to pay; 2 Jehovah is thy name;

The blood and water from his side.'
And thro'thy blood apply'd,

Wash guilt and sin away.
Convinc'd and certify'd I am,
There is no God beside,

4 And now he pleading stands

For us, before the throne; 3 Soon as the Spirit shows,

And answers all the law's demands
That precious blood of thine,

With what himself hath done.
The happy, pardon'd sinner knows
It is the blood divine.

5 He sees us willing slaves

To sin, and Satan's pow'r'; 4 Yea only he, who feels:

But with an outstretch'd arm, he saves, “My Saviour for me dy'd,"

In his appointed hour.
Is certain that the Godhead dwells
In Jesus crucify’d.

To make his enemies his friends,

Give me faith on thee
Your most triumphant songs employ,' To depend, and daily bolder
Extol the Lord of all.

Cast all mis’ry on thy shoulder,
3 Children of God, who walk by faith,

Which I feel in me;
Ye ransom'd from the fall,

Draw me nigh to thee.
Show forth your dear Redeemer's death, 5 Grant me steadiness,
Confess him Lord of all,
