129. 'Tis a True and Faithful Saying

8.7.8.7.
1
'Tis a true and faithful saying,
 
Jesus died for sinful men;
 
Though we've told the story often,
 
We must tell it o'er again.
 
Oh glad and glorious gospel!
 
With joy we now proclaim
 
A full and free salvation
 
Through faith in Jesus' name!
2
He has made a full atonement,
 
Now His saving work is done;
 
He has satisfied the Father,
 
Who accepts us in His Son.
3
Still upon His hands the nail-prints
 
For eternity He'll bear;
 
Our Redeemer, Lord and Saviour,
 
In the glory sitteth there.
4
But remember, this same Jesus
 
In the clouds will come again;
 
And with Him His blood-bought people
 
Evermore shall live and reign.
