Representative Text

1 My Saviour, when they brought thee
To Pilate's judgment hall,
Thy questioner was silenced,
He found "no fault at all."

Refrain:
No fault, no fault in Jesus!
What peerless glories shine
From life and death so precious,
So holy, so divine.

2 My Saviour, when in conflict
Upon thy name I call,
In thee, my friend unfailing.
I find "no fault at all." [Refrain]

3 My Saviour, dwell within me,
For sins my soul appal;
Transform me to thy likeness,
For thine, "no fault at all." [Refrain]

4 My Saviour, let thy beauty
My willing soul enthrall,
Till with new love enkindled,
I cry, "no fault at all." [Refrain]

5 And when in adoration
Before thy throne I fall,
And see thee-all enraptured.
I'll sing, "no fault at all." [Refrain]
