1 Jesus, your blood and righteousness
my beauty are, my glorious dress!
mid flaming worlds, in these arrayed
with joy shall I lift up my head.

2 Bold shall I stand in that great day,
and none condemn me, try who may:
fully absolved through Christ I am
from sin and fear, from guilt and shame.

3 This stainless robe its beauty wears
when all else fades with passing years;
no age can change its glorious hue
the robe of Christ is ever new.

4 When from the dust of death I rise
to claim my home beyond the skies,
then this shall be my only plea
that Jesus died and lives for me!

5 O let the dead now hear your voice,
let those once lost in sin rejoice!
their beauty this, their glorious dress:
Jesus, your blood and righteousness.
