Mercy Seat

My Savior for me bled

Author: John Relly
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My Saviour for me bled
Upon the cross's wood;
For me, the sinner me, he shed
His rich atoning blood.

2 For my offences great
He died a cursed death;
And wrought Salvation out complete
To be enjoy'd by faith.

3 The wine press he did tread,
And, thro' his bleeding side,
His spirit, in abundance, shed
On his beloved bride.

4 Now, by his grace, I know
That I am one of them,
For whom the Saviour died below
Upon the cross's stem.
