Daily Gospel: 5/11/11

Lord, how secure my conscious was
And felt no inward dread
I was alive without the Law
And thought my sins were dead.

My hopes of heaven were firm and bright
But then Your standard came
With a convincing power and light
To show how vile I am

Chorus
Let Your blood plead for me
Let Your blood wash me clean
I believe, Lord I believe
Your blood has covered me.

My guilt appeared so small before,
Till terribly I saw
How perfect, holy, just and pure
Was Your eternal Law

My soul was in the bonds of sin,
The cold and jagged chain.
I had provoked a dreadful God
All my hopes were slain
 
Let Your blood plead for me
Let Your blood wash me clean
I believe, Lord I believe
Your blood has covered me.
 - Sojourn, "Let Your Blood Plead For Me", Text by Isaac Watts Arranged by Jeremy Quillo & Bobby Gilles

I love hymns that tell the spiritual story of progression from death and hopelessness to hope in Christ, even if only the last word of the last line points to Christ.
