Author: James Montgomery Hymnal: Church Book #160 (1890) Hymnal Title: Church Book Lyrics: 1 Dust and ashes, sin and guilt,--
Christ, for me Thy blood was spilt;
Cleanse Thou me from guilt and sin,
Make Me pure without, within;
Soul and body, at Thy word,
Be to saving health restored.
2 Flesh and blood, this mortal frame,
Thou wert pleased to wear the same;
Though Thy nature was divine,
Thou didst condescend to mine;
Let me, for Thy mercy's sake,
Thy Divinity partake.
3 From the ruins of the Fall,
Me to grace and glory call:
Me, O Lord my Righteousness!
With Thine image re-impress:
Thou didst stoop to earth for me:
Raise me up to heaven with Thee. Topics: The Passion; Sundays in Lent; Lent, Second Sunday Languages: English Tune Title: HERR NUN LASZ IN FRIEDE
