Forgiveness when no blood was shed

Forgiveness when no blood was shed,
What then of righteousness?
Reproof when blood already flowed,
Would likewise be unjust.
O God, no more can You condemn;
My Lord was sacrificed;
I'm fully free, as far from sin
As East is far from West.
All that Your righteousness demands
My Lord has fully paid;
Now You can only pardon grant;
No judgment can be made.
At first, ‘twas love bade Him redeem,
Your righteousness appease,
But now by righteousness He must
Sin's prisoners release.
Astounding! Love and righteousness
Both at the cross I see;
So moved by what they two have wrought,
I'll sing unceasingly.

I need to hear these most wonderful words from the old hymns. Thank you so very much for your ministry it is so important to me and so many others across the world. I believe for many even in the US because so many churches don’t use the hymns anymore.

Thank you!
