Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:5-6a
1 Jesus, your blood and righteousness My beauty are, my glorious dress;
Mid flaming worlds, in these arrayed, With joy shall I lift up my head.
2 Bold shall I stand in that great day, Cleansed and redeemed, no debt to pay;
For by your cross, absolved I am From sin and guilt, from fear and shame.
3 Lord, I believe your precious blood,Which at the mercy-seat of God
Pleads for the captives' liberty, Was also shed in love for me.
4 Lord, I believe, were sinners more Than stands upon the ocean shore,
You have for all a ransom paid, For all a full atonement made.
5 When from the dust of death I rise To claim my mansion in the skies,
This then shall be my only plea: Christ Jesus lived and died for me.
6 Then shall I praise you and adore Your blessed name forevermore,
Who once, for me and all you made, An everlasting ransom paid.
