What offering shall we give

What offering shall we give
or what atonement bring
to God by whom alone we live,
high heaven’s eternal King?

2. For all the blood of beasts
on Jewish altars slain
could never give the conscience peace
or wash away its stain:

3. But Christ, the heavenly Lamb,
takes all our sins away-
a sacrifice of nobler name
and richer blood than they.

4. In faith I lay my hand
upon his head divine
while as a penitent I stand
and there confess my sin.

5. So I look back to see
the weight he chose to bear
when hanging on the cross for me-
because my guilt was there.

6. Believing, we rejoice
to see sin’s curse remove;
we bless the Lamb with heart and voice
and sing his wondrous love.
