For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean,
and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm,
for God can be trusted to keep his promise.
Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know Him.
He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.
