Jesus, Thy Blood and Righteousness

3. Lord, I believe They precious blood,
Which, at the mercy seat of God,
Forever doth for sinners plead,
For me, for my own soul, was shed.

4. 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.

Praise be to God for the mercy poured out to us through the atonement of Christ our Lord!
