1 In vain we seek for peace with God
By methods of our own:
Jesus, there's nothing but Thy blood
Can bring us near the throne.
2 'Tis Thy atoning Sacrifice
Hath answered all demands;
And peace and pardon from the skies
Are blessings from Thy hands.
3 'Tis by Thy Death we live, O Lord;
'Tis on Thy Cross we rest:
For ever by Thy Love adored,
Thy Name for ever blest.
