The Hymn: Thy Blood was Shed for Me

05/08/2012

This hymn reminds us of our unworthiness – our utter sinfulness in the sight of Holy God, and of the righteousness of Christ, our Saviour.

Let the world their virtue boast and works of righteousness
I a wretch undone and lost am freely saved by grace
Take me Saviour as I am
Let me lose my sins in Thee
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb
Thy blood was shed for me

Full of truth and grace Thou art and here is all my hope
False and foul as hell my heart to Thee I offer up
Thou wast given to redeem
My soul from iniquity
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb
Thy blood was shed for me

Nothing have I Lord to pay nor can Thy grace procure
Empty, send me not away for Thou knowest I am poor
Dust and ashes is my name
My all is sin and misery
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb
Thy blood was shed for me

Charles Wesley
