For me offer'd up,
Who with clamour pursu'd thee to Calvary’s top:

Its virtue below;
Let it wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Let it hallow my heart,
And thoroughly convert,
And make me, O Lord, in the world as thou art.

3 Each moment apply'd,
My Weakness to hide,
Thy blood be upon me, and always abide:
My advocate prove
With the Father above,
And speak me at last to the throne of thy love.
