369. Father, though I have sinned with Thee

1 Father, though I have sinned with Thee
An Advocate I have:
Jesus the Just shall plead for me,
The sinner Christ shall save.

2 Pardon and peace in Him I find;
But not for me alone:
The Lamb was slain: for all mankind
His Blood did once atone.

3 My soul is on Thy promise cast,
And lo! I claim my part:
The universal pardon's past;
O seal it on my heart!

4 Thou canst not now Thy grace deny;
Thou canst not but forgive:
Lord, if thy justice asks me why--
In Jesus I believe.
