HYMN 118

L. M.

The priesthood of Christ.


Blood has a voice to pierce the skies,

"Revenge!" the blood of Abel cries;

But the dear stream when Christ was slain

Speaks peace as loud from every vein.

Pardon and peace from God on high;

Behold, he lays his vengeance by,

And rebels that deserved his sword

Become the favorites of the Lord.

To Jesus let our praises rise,

Who gave his life a sacrifice;

Now he appears before his God,

And for our pardon pleads his blood.
