Representative Text

1. O theme with love and mercy fraught,
Salvation full and free,
That Christ upon the cross has wrought
For me, for me:

This shall be my only plea,
This shall be my only plea,
That Christ was crucified for me,
For me, for me.

2. When dreadful sin my soul assails,
And death shall compass me,
That Christ o’er sin and death prevails
For me, for me: [Refrain]

3. And when before the throne I stand,
And judgment set shall be,
That Christ fulfilled the law’s command
For me, for me: [Refrain]
