The God of peace…brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant. Hebrews 13:20

BLOOD OF HIS COVENANT

Blood of His covenant,
Sprinkles down upon us,
Cleanses our filthiness; washes from sin!
Pour down upon our hearts! Flood over our rescued souls!
Seal our great acquittal from all guilt within!
Gone are my stains of guilt;
Gone my deep pollution;
Gone, gone to Calvary; lost in His grave!
There lies my wickedness, forever buried!
Spotless, I adore Him, for all that He gave!
Closed is the great abyss!
Silent, my accuser!
Only Christ’s righteousness speaks now for me.
I feel His nail-scarred hand, tenderly washing all!
Loved in the Beloved, O how can this be?
Worship the mystery!
Fall in mute amazement!
Murmur astonished praise there at His feet!
Now breaks my heart of stone; now comes His Spirit;
Now my heart of flesh is quickened to beat.
