129. 'Tis a True and Faithful Saying
'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!
He has made a full atonement,
Now His saving work is done;
He has satisfied the Father,
Who accepts us in His Son.
Still upon His hands the nail-prints
For eternity He'll bear;
Our Redeemer, Lord and Savior,
In the glory sitteth there.
But remember, this same Jesus
In the clouds will come again;
And with Him His blood-bought people
Evermore shall live and reign.
