247. O Gracious Saviour, Thou Hast Given

8.6.8.6.6.6.8.6.
1
O gracious Saviour, Thou hast given
 
My trembling soul to know
 
That, trusting in Thy precious blood,
 
I'm washed as white as snow.
 
I'm washed as white as snow,
 
I'm washed as white as snow,
 
That, trusting in Thy precious blood,
 
I'm washed as white as snow.
2
Since Thou hast borne sin's heavy load,
 
My guilty fear is o'er.
 
Made Thine, by virtue of Thy blood,
 
I'm sealed forevermore.
 
I'm sealed forevermore,
 
I'm sealed forevermore,
 
Made Thine, by virtue of Thy blood,
 
I'm sealed forevermore.
3
What wait I for, most blessed Lord,
 
Except Thy face to see?
 
If such the earnest Thou hast given,
 
What must Thy presence be?
 
What must Thy presence be?
 
What must Thy presence be?
 
If such the earnest Thou hast given,
 
What must Thy presence be?
4
To hear Thy voice, to see Thy face,
 
And grieve Thy heart no more;
 
But drink the fullness of Thy grace,
 
Thy love forevermore.
 
Thy love forevermore,
 
Thy love forevermore,
 
But drink the fullness of Thy grace,
 
Thy love forevermore.
