O blessèd feet of Je­sus,
Weary with seeking me!
Stand at God’s bar of judg­ment
And intercede for me.

O knees which bent in anguish
In dark Geth­se­ma­ne!
Kneel at the throne of glo­ry
And intercede for me.

O hands that were extended
Upon that hallowed tree!
Hold up those precious nail prints
Which intercede for me.

O side from whence the spear point
Brought blood and water free,
For healing and cleansing!
Still intercede for me.

O holy, scarred and wounded
My sacrifice to be!
Present Thy perfect offering
And intercede for me.

O loving, ris­en Sav­ior,
From death and sorrow free!
Enthroned in endless glo­ry,
Still intercede for me.
