L.M.


1
OUR is a pardon bought with blood,
Amazing truth! the blood of One
Who, without usurpation, could
Lay claim to heav'n's eternal throne!
2
No victim in inferior worth
Could bear the stroke that justice aimed;
For none but He, in heav'n or earth,
Could offer that which justice claimed.
3
But He, the Lord of glory, came;
Upon the cross He bowed His head;
He suffered pain, He suffered shame,
And lay a prisoner with the dead.
4
But lo! He's risen from the grave,
And bears the greatest, noblest Name:
The Lord - almighty now to save
From sin, from death, from endless shame.
