271 (C.M.)

Great God, though from myself concealed,

Thou seest my inward frame;

To Thee I always stand revealed

Exactly as I am.

Since, therefore, I can hardly bear

What in myself I see,

How vile and black must I appear,

Most holy God, to Thee!

But since my Saviour stands between

In garments dyed in blood,

'Tis He, instead of me, is seen

When I approach to God.

Thus, though a sinner, I am safe;

He pleads before the throne

His life and death in my behalf,

And calls my sins His own.

What wondrous love, what mysteries

In this appointment shine!

My breaches of the law are His,

And His obedience mine.
