Words by Nikolaus L. von Zinzendorf (1792-1866)Tune: HURSLEY from Katholisches Gesangbuch, Vienna, c. 1774Key signature: F major (1 flat)Meter: 126.96.36.199.(L.M.)Public Domain1. Jesus, Your blood and righteousness My beauty are, my glorious dress; before Your throne, in these arrayed, joyful shall I lift up my head.2. Bold shall I stand in that great day; Freed from a debt I could not pay. Fully absolved from these I am: From sin and fear, from guilt and shame.3. Lord, I believe Your precious blood, Which, at the mercy seat of God, Forever does for sinners plead, For my unworthy soul was shed.4. Lord, I believe were sinners more Than sands upon the ocean shore, You have for us a ransom paid, For us a full atonement made.
