US Hymn 313  Let thy Blood

 

 

 

Let thy Blood in mercy poured,

let thy gracious Body broken,

be to me, O gracious Lord,

of thy boundless love the token:

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.

 

Thou didst die that I might live;

blessed Lord, thou cam’st to save me;

all that love of God could give

Jesus by his sorrows gave me:

 

By the thorns that crowned thy brow,

by the spear-wound and the nailing,

by the pain and death, I now

claim, O Christ, thy love unfailing:

 

Wilt thou own the gift I bring?

All my penitence I give thee;

thou art my exalted King,

of thy matchless love forgive me:
