ETERNAL BLOOD! ETERNAL LAMB!
Behold, the Lamb of God was slain
By God's own wise decree:
The blood of Christ has stood for me
From all etemity!
God's wrath could not destroy the world,
Though Adam fell in sin,
Because the Lamb was slain for man
Before the world began.
Then at the time ordained by God
The Lamb poured out His blood,
For all the world of His elect,
And paid the debt we owed!
Dear Lamb of God, Your precious blood
Has ransomed me from death;
And I will praise You for that blood
As long as I have breath.
Though Satan rage against my soul,
Though I am full of sin,
I trust Christ's sin-atoning blood-
It gives me peace within.
That blood is my security;
(Christ must be satisfied!)
Not one can ever be condemned
For whom the Lamb has died!
When I have dropped this robe of flesh
And enter heaven's bliss,
The Lamb who has been slain for me,
I shall forever bless!
Eternal blood! Eternal Lamb!
Eternal God, my King!
A worthless sinner saved by grace,
I owe You everything!
(Tune: America the Beautiful)
