When we were yet without the strength

Our souls to help or save,

Christ for ungodly, sinful men

His life a ransom gave:

It was not for a righteous man,

Nor even for the good,

That Christ laid down His life in death

And shed His precious blood.


But God commends His love to us,

In that Christ Jesus died

For us, who were His enemies,

To make us justified!

Now, since through blood we're justified

By Christ's atoning death,

Much more we shall be saved in Him

From judgement and from wrath.


For if when we were enemies

Christ's death ended all strife,

Much more, since we've been reconciled,

He'll save us by His life.

Now we rejoice and glory too,

And triumph in our God:

We have in Jesus Christ received

Atonement by His blood!
