Jesus My Only Hope

Here's another Mark Altrogge song that I've loved and benefited from. The lyrics are so rich.

Jesus My Only Hope

Verse 1
I come into Your presence
With nothing in my hands
I only bring thanksgiving
For Jesus God and Man
I cast myself on mercy
I cast myself on love
I trust Your gracious promise
To wash me with Your blood

Verse 2
I will not fear Your judgment
For me no wrath I dread
For it was spent on Jesus
Poured out upon His head
When Satan's accusations
Make my poor heart afraid
I hear my King declaring
Father that debt is paid

Chorus
Jesus my only hope
My only plea
My righteousness
My Great High Priest
Who intercedes for me
Before the throne
Jesus I trust in You alone

Verse 3
Though I am poor and naked
Your prodigal come home
You place Your robe upon me
Your holiness alone
Though I be dry and barren
By grace this love springs forth
Love for You and Your kingdom
Joy in Your glory Lord
