Redeeming Blood. 1 John 1. 7; Isa. 64. 6

C. Wesley                              7.6.8.

1
Let the world their virtue boast,
And works of righteousness,
I, a wretch undone and lost,
Am freely saved by grace.
Take me, Saviour, as I am,
And let me lose my sins in thee.
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb,
Thy blood was shed for me.

2
Full of truth and grace thou art,
And here is all my hope;
False and foul as hell, my heart
To thee I offer up.
Thou wast given to redeem
My soul from all iniquity.
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb,
Thy blood was shed for me.

3
Nothing have I, Lord, to pay,
Nor can thy grace procure,
Empty send me not away,
For I, thou know’st, am poor.
Dust and ashes is my name,
My all is sin and misery.
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb,
Thy blood was shed for me.a
