Renewal in the Image of Christ.
Dust and ashes, sin and guilt,--
Christ, for me Thy blood was spilt;
Cleanse Thou me from guilt and sin,
Make Me pure without, within;
Soul and body, at Thy word,
Be to saving health restored.
Flesh and blood, this mortal frame;
Thou wert pleased to wear the same;
Though Thy nature was divine,
Thou didst condescend to mine;
Let me, for Thy mercy's sake,
Thy divinity partake.
From the ruins of the fall,
Me to grace and glory call:
Me, O Lord my Righteousness!
With Thine image re-impress;
Thou didst stoop to earth for me;
Raise me up to heaven with Thee.
