526. Blessed Are the Sons of God

1 Blessed are the sons of God,
they are bought with Christ's own blood;
they are ransomed from the grave,
life eternal they shall have:

With them numbered may we be,
here and in eternity.

2 They are justified by grace,
they enjoy the Savior's peace;
all their sins are washed away,
they shall stand in God's great day: [Refrain]

3 They are lights upon the earth,
children of a heav'nly birth;
one with God, with Jesus one,
glory is in them begun: [Refrain]
