CHRIST JESUS, ADVOCATE WITH GOD
(Tune: Faith of Our Fathers #183 88.88.88)
Christ Jesus, Advocate with God,
My only trust is in Your blood.
None can remove my guilt and blame,
But You, great sin-atoning Lamb!
The merits of Your death impart,
Speak peace to this poor sinner's heart.
Dear Savior, hear my humble prayer,
Come drive away my doubts and fears.
Dear Prince of Peace, with peace return,
Great Comforter of all that mourn!
Declare my many sins forgiv'n,
And guide me safely on to heav'n.
Oh, keep me Savior, day by day,
Walking the strait and narrow way,
Denying all self-righteousness,
Trusting Your blood and righteousness.
I have no hope but God's free grace
In You, "The LORD MY RIGHTEOUSNESS!"
