JESUS, Thy blood and righteousness

My beauty are, my glorious dress;

Midst flaming worlds, in these arrayed,

With joy shall I lift up my head.


Lord, I believe were sinners more

Than sands upon the ocean shore,

Thou hast for all a ransom paid,

For all a full atonement made.


When from the dust of death I rise

To claim my mansion in the skies,

E’en then shall this be all my plea,

Jesus hath lived and died for me.


Bold shall I stand in that great day,

For who aught to my charge shall lay?

Fully, by Thee, absolved I am

From sin and fear, from guilt and shame.


This spotless robe the same appears,

When ruined nature sinks in years;

No age can change its glorious hue;

Its glory is forever new.


Thou God of power, Thou God of love,

Let all the world Thy mercy prove;

Their beauty this, their glorious dress,

Jesus the Lord, our Righteousness.
