Not All the Blood of Beasts

  1. Not all the blood of beasts
    on Jewish altars slain,
    could give the guilty conscience peace,
    or wash away the stain.
  2. But Christ, the heav’nly Lamb,
    takes all our sins away,
    a sacrifice of nobler name
    and richer blood than they.
  3. My faith would lay her hand
    on that dear head of thine,
    while like a penitent I stand,
    and there confess my sin.
  4. My soul looks back to see
    the burdens thou didst bear,
    when hanging on the cursed tree,
    and knows her guilt was there.
  5. Believing, we rejoice
    to see the curse remove;
    we bless the Lamb with cheerful voice,
    and sing his bleeding love.
