418 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

In vain we seek for peace with God,

By methods of our own;

Jesus, there's nothing but Thy blood

Can bring us near the throne.

The threat'nings of Thy broken law

Impress the soul with dread;

If God the sword of justice draw,

It strikes the spirit dead.

But Thine illustrious sacrifice

Hath answered these demands;

And peace and pardon from the skies

Came down from Jesus' hands.

Here all the ancient types agree,

The altar and the Lamb;

And prophets in their visions see

Salvation through His name.

'Tis by Thy death we live, O Lord,

'Tis on Thy cross we rest;

Forever be Thy love adored

Thy name forever blest.
