And spread, O God, before Thine eyes
That only ground of all our hope,

2. Acceptance through His holy name,
Forgiveness in His blood we have;
But more abundant life we claim
Through Him who died our souls to save,
To sanctify us by His blood
And fill with all the life of God.

And hear His blood that speaks above;
Oh let us all Thy grace be shown,
Peace, righteousness, and joy, and love:
Thy kingdom come to every heart,
And all Thou hast, and all Thou art.
