99a. Repentanace and Faith in the Blood of Christ

1 O God of Mercy, hear my Call,
My Loads of Guilt remove;
Break down this separating Wall,
That bars me from thy Love.

2 Give me the Presence of thy Grace,
Then my rejoicing Tongue
Shall speak aloud thy Righteousness,
And make thy Praise my Song.

3 No blood of Goat, nor Heifer slain,
For Sin could e'er attone;
The Death of Christ shall still remain
Sufficient and alone.

4 A Soul opprest with Sin's Desert,
My GOD will ne'er despise;
A humble Groan, a broken Heart,
Is our best Sacrifice.
