1 Without blood is no remission;
Thus the law proclaims from heaven;
Blood must flow--on this condition,
This alone, is sin forgiven:
Yes, a victim must be slain,
Else all hope of life is vain.
2 But the victim--who shall find it?
Such a one as sinners need?
To the altar who shall bind it?
Who shall make the victim bleed?
Questions these of anxious thought,
Till the word of God is bright.
3 God himself provides the Victim--
Jesus is the Lamb of God;
Heaven and earth and hell afflict him,
While he bears the sinner's load:
'Tis his blood, and that alone,
Can for human guilt atone.
