73. The Lord of Life in Death Hath Lain

by J. Wesley
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
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
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
