73. The Lord of Life in Death Hath Lain

L.M.
by J. Wesley
1
The Lord of life in death hath lain,
 
To clear me from all charge of sin;
 
And, Lord, from guilt of crimson stain
 
Thy precious blood hath made me clean.
Acts 3:15; John 19:38-42; Romans 8:33-34; Isaiah 1:18; 1 Peter 1:18-19
2
And now a righteousness divine
 
Is all my glory, all my trust;
 
Nor will I fear since that is mine,
 
While Thou dost live, and God is just.
Philippians 3:9; Romans 3:26; Isaiah 61:10
3
Clad in this robe, how bright I shine!
 
Angels possess not such a dress;
 
Angels have not a robe like mine—
 
Jesus the Lord's my righteousness.
1 Corinthians 1:30; Jeremiah 23:6
