MY CONSCIENCE NOW IS FREE AND CLEAR
Guilty, oppressed and vexed with sin,
My fear no words could tell;
God's law my soul in terror held
And threatened me with hell!
I tried, but found I could not do
One thing pleasing to God:
Neither my works nor all my prayers
Could ease me of my load.
I sank in deep despair and felt
That I would surely die:
"No hope for me, I'm lost, undone!"
My soul began to cry.
But then I heard the Savior say,
"Look unto Me and live,
My blood has full atonement made,
I can salvation give."
When Christ revealed Himself to me,
I looked, and I believed;
And trusting Him alone I have
Salvation now received!
My conscience now is free and clear,
And it condemns me not!
The precious blood of Jesus Christ
My sin has blotted out!
My sins are gone! My sins are gone!
Christ washed them all away!
He satisfied my awful debt,
There's nothing left to pay!
Now this is all my hope and peace,
And my security:
Christ Jesus lived in righteousness
And shed His blood for me!
(Tune: America the Beautiful)
