Dear Lord, how precious is Thy blood

1
Dear Lord, how precious is Thy blood,
  Of the New Testament!
By it God’s blessings we receive,
  And we with Him are blent.
2
“Tis by Thy blood we’ve been redeemed,
  And by it sanctified.
Now is our conscience free from sin,
  From dead works purified.
3
Better than Abel’s, now Thy blood
  Speaks unto God for us.
Perfect redemption it provides,
  Meeting God’s righteousness.
4
Through the eternal Spirit, Thou
  Offeredst Thyself to God.
This sacrifice can ne’er grow old;
  Timeless is Thy dear blood.
5
’Tis by Thy blood we boldly come
  Unto the throne of grace,
Unto our God, the cov’nant new,
  And to the Holiest Place.
6
Lord, by Thy blood, God is obliged
  His very Self to give;
He must receive us to Himself,
  And He in us must live.
7
Dear Lord, how precious is Thy blood
  Of the New Testament!
By it God’s blessings we receive,
  And we with Him are blent.
