48. There Is Life in a Look at the Crucified One

P.M.
by Miss A.M. Hull
1
There is life in a look at the crucified One;
 
There is life at this moment for thee;
 
Then look, sinner, look unto Him and be saved,
 
Unto Him who was nailed to the tree.
 
Look! look! look and live!
 
There is life in a look at the crucified One,
 
There is life at this moment for thee.
2
It is not thy tears of repentance nor prayers,
 
But the blood that atones for the soul:
 
On Him then believe, and a pardon receive,
 
For His blood now can make thee quite whole.
3
We are healed by His stripes; wouldst thou add to the word?
 
And He is our righteousness made;
 
The best robe of heaven He bids thee put on:
 
Oh, couldst thou be better arrayed?
4
Then doubt not thy welcome, since God has declared
 
There remaineth no more to be done,
 
That once in the end of the world He appeared,
 
And completed the work He'd begun.
5
But take, with rejoicing, from Jesus at once
 
The life everlasting He gives;
 
And know with assurance thou never canst die,
 
Since Jesus, thy righteousness, lives.
