Praise for Atoning Blood. 1 Cor. 6. 11, 20; Rev. 1. 5

J. Newton        8.7.7.

1
Let us love, and sing, and wonder;
Let us praise the Saviour’s name;
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder;
He has quenched Mount Sinai’s flame;
He has washed us in his blood;
He has brought us home to God!

2
Let us love the Lord who bought us;
Pitied us when enemies;
Called us by his grace, and taught us;
Gave us ears, and gave us eyes;
He has washed us in his blood;
He has brought us home to God!

3
Let us sing though fierce temptation
Threatens hard to bear us down;
Jesus is our strong salvation;
He will surely give the crown;
He has washed us in his blood;
He has brought us home to God!

4
[Let us wonder! grace and justice
Join and point to mercy’s store;
When, through grace, in Christ our trust is,
Justice smiles, and asks no more;
He has washed us in his blood;
He has brought us home to God!]

5
Let us praise, and join the chorus
Of the saints enthroned on high;
Here they trusted him before us,
Now their praises fill the sky;
He has washed us in his blood;
He has brought us home to God!

6
Yes, we praise thee, gracious Saviour;
Wonder, love, and bless thy name;
Pardon, Lord, our poor endeavour;
Pity, for thou know’st our frame;
Wash our souls and songs with blood,
For by thee we come to God.
