“Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness”

A hymn written by Paul Eber and Count Zinzendorf. (Translated by John Wesley)

  1. Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness
    My beauty are, my glorious dress;
    Midst flaming worlds, in these arrayed,
    With joy shall I lift up my head.

  1. When from the dust of death I rise
    To take my mansion in the skies,
    E'en then shall this be all my plea –
    Jesus hath lived and died for me.

  1. Bold shall I stand in that great day,
    For who aught to my charge shall lay?
    Fully through Thee absolved I am,
    From sin's tremendous curse and shame.

  1. Thus Abraham, the friend of God,
    Thus all the armies bought with blood,
    Saviour of sinners Thee proclaim!
    Sinners of whom the chief I am.

  1. This spotless robe the same appears
    When ruined nature sinks in years;
    No age can change its glorious hue,
    The robe of Christ is ever new.

  1. Oh, let the dead now hear thy voice!
    Now bid Thy banished ones rejoice!
    Their beauty this, their glorious dress,
    Jesus, the Lord our Righteousness.
