C.M.

"No condemnation!" Precious word!
 
Consider it, my soul!
 
Thy sins were all on Jesus laid;
 
His stripes have made thee whole.
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1)
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:5-6)
2
In heaven the blood forever speaks
 
In God's omniscient ear;
 
The saints, as jewels on His heart,
 
Jesus doth ever bear.
“And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:24)
“And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.” (Malachi 3:17)

"No condemnation!" O my soul,
 
'Tis God that speaks the word,
 
Perfect in comeliness art thou
 
In Christ, the risen Lord.
“And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” (Colossians 2:10)
“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.” (1 Corinthians 15:20)

Teach me, O God, to fix mine eyes
 
On Christ, the spotless Lamb,
 
So shall I love Thy precious will,
 
And glorify His name.
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” (Hebrews 2:9)
“But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1:19)
“I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” (Psalm 40:8)
“I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.” (Psalm 86:12)
