Representative Text

1 Tho’ numbered with the sin-defiled,
I am my Father’s long-sought child;
And now my soul is reconciled,
O Lamb of God, thro’ Thee!

The lamb of God, who for me died,
And on the cross was crucified,
In my behalf points to His side,
My only Intercessor.

2 In naught but filthy rags I come,
Yet, weary of these paths I roam,
I seek at last my Father’s home,
O Lamb of God, thro’ Thee! [Refrain]

3 No more, among the husks and swine,
With want and hunger I repine;
The ring, the robe, the kiss are mine,
O Lamb of God, thro’ Thee! [Refrain]

4 Tho’ coming empty to Thy feet,
My soul with joy is made replete;
Mine is the Father’s pardon sweet,
O Lamb of God, thro’ Thee! [Refrain]
