I thought upon my sins, and I was sad - Christ our peace (Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Christ our peace.

1. I thought upon my sins, and I was sad,
  my soul was troubled sore and filled with pain;
but then I thought on Jesus, and was glad,
  my heavy grief was turned to joy again. (PDF - Midi)

2. I thought upon the law, the fiery law,
  holy, and just, and good in its decree;
I looked to Jesus, and in him I saw
  that law fulfilled, its curse endured for me.

3. I thought I saw an angry frowning God
  sitting as Judge upon the great white throne;
my soul was overwhelmed, — then Jesus showed
  his gracious face, and all my dread was gone.

4. I saw my sad estate, condemned to die,
  then terror seized my heart, and dark despair;
but when to Calvary I turned my eye,
  I saw the cross, and read forgiveness there.

5. I saw that I was lost, far gone astray,
  no hope of safe return there seemed to be;
but then I heard that Jesus was the way,
  a new and living way prepared for me.

6. Then in that way, so free, so safe, so sure,
  sprinkled all o'er with reconciling blood,
will I abide, and never wander more,
  walking along in fellowship with God.
