HYMN 293

K. 154 t.H.C 94 S.M (FE 314)

1.  NOT all the blood of beasts

     On Jewish altars slain

     Could give the guilty conscience peace

     Or wash away the slain.

2.  But Christ the heavenly Lamb 

     Takes all our Sins away

     A sacrifice of nobler name 

     And richer blood than they.

3.  My faith would lay her hand 

     On that dear head of Thine 

     While like a penitent I stand 

     And there confess my sin.

4.  My soul looks back to see

     The burdens Thou dist bear

     When hanging on the accursed tree 

     l know my guilt He bore.

5.  Believing, we rejoice

     To see the curse remove

     We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice 

     And sing His bleeding love!  Amen
