6.6.6.6.8.8.


1
CHRIST did for sins atone,
And on the cross He bled;
Forgiveness may be known,
Because His blood was shed
To free thee from the bonds of sin,
And give thee peace and joy within.
2
His face He firmly set,
And all the road He trod,
Till justice had been met
Before a holy God,
Who now is free, at such a cost,
To offer mercy to the lost.
3
But O, His suff'rings o'er,
He lives in glory there;
Alive to die no more,
He waits with us to share
His Father's house - that home so bright -
Th' eternal day without a night.
