Lyrics

O blessèd feet of Je­sus,
Weary with seek­ing me!
Stand at God’s bar of judg­ment
And in­ter­cede for me.

O knees which bent in ang­uish
In dark Geth­se­ma­ne!
Kneel at the throne of glo­ry
And in­ter­cede for me.

O hands that were ex­tend­ed
Upon that hal­lowed tree!
Hold up those pre­cious nail prints
Which in­ter­cede for me.

O side from whence the spear point
Brought blood and wa­ter free,
For heal­ing and cleans­ing!
Still in­ter­cede for me.

O ho­ly, scarred and wound­ed
My sac­ri­fice to be!
Present Thy per­fect of­fer­ing
And in­ter­cede for me.

O lov­ing, ris­en Sav­ior,
From death and sor­row free!
Enthroned in end­less glo­ry,
Still in­ter­cede for me.
