1 I hear the words of Jesus,
They speak of peace with God;
I see the Lamb, Christ Jesus,
Who bore my heavy load;
I trust the blood of Jesus,
From sin it sets me free,
I love the name of Jesus,
Who gave Himself for me.

2 His word, divinely blessèd,
It shows me what I am;
His cross, it brings salvation,
The victim was the Lamb;
His blood procureth pardon,
And justifies the soul,
His name, how sweet and precious,
It makes the sinner whole.

3 Oh! hear the words of Jesus,
The tidings are for thee;
Oh! clasp the cross of Jesus,
And there for refuge flee;
Oh! trust the blood of Jesus,
Be saved this very hour;
Oh! love the name of Jesus,
Blest name of wondrous power.
