526. Blessed Are the Sons of God

1 Blessed are the sons of God,
They are bought with Christ's own blood;
They are ransomed from the grave,
Life eternal they shall have:

Refrain:
With them numbered may we be,
Here and in eternity.

2 They are justified by grace,
They enjoy the Saviour's peace;
All their sins are washed away,
They shall stand in God's great day: [Refrain]

3 They are lights upon the earth,
Children of a heav'nly birth;
One with God, with Jesus one,
Glory is in them begun: [Refrain]
