Oh my Saviour, let it be,
That we offer praise to thee,
Who hast bought us with thy blood,
Thou didst make our peace with God.
For sinful man can never be
Redeemed from sin, but as by Thee;
Thy cruel death on Calvary’s cross
Frees from sin’s eternal loss.
Thy sacrifice did banish sin
Before God’s face, and bring us in.
To us who rest in Christ our Lord,
He justifies before our God.
No work of man could ever bring
Acceptance, for ‘tis found in Him
Who died to put away our sin,
And rising, justified again.
So now to Christ our righteousness,
And that by grace, we would confess,
We never could have been brought nigh,
Except our Lord did bleed and die.
