1.  Lamb of God, who Thee receive,

Who is Thee desire to live,

Cry by day and night to Thee,

as Thou art, so let us be.

2.  Fix, oh, fix our wavering mind,

To Thy Cross us firmly bind;

Gladly now we would be clean;

Cleanse our hearts from every sin.

3.  Dust and ashes though we be,

Full of guilt and misery;

Thine we are, Thou Son of God,

Take the purchase of Thy blood.

4.  Sinners, who in Thee believe,

Everlasting life receive;

They with joy behold Thy face,

Triumph in Thy pardoning grace.

5.  Life deriving from Thy death,

They proceed from faith to faith,

Walk the new, the living way,

Leading to eternal day.

6.  Praise on earth to Thee be given,

Never-ceasing praise in heaven;

Boundless wisdom, power divine,

Love unspeakable are Thine.
