Representative Text

1 The precious blood of Christ!
The Lamb of God once slain;
Doth cleanse the soul from all its guilt,
Removing ev’ry stain.

Refrain:
The blood, the precious blood,
Be this my only plea;
The blood, the precious blood,
The Saviour shed for me.

2 The precious blood of Christ!
Thro’ faith it justifies
The soul that feels its guilty load,
And loud for mercy cries. [Refrain]

3 The precious blood of Christ!
Its virtues ne’er can bless
An anxious sinner with its peace,
Till he his sins confess. [Refrain]

4 The precious blood of Christ!
To God it brings us near;
And to our hearts assurance gives,
That Jesus holds us dear. [Refrain]

5 The precious blood of Christ!
Be this my only plea;
For life, and peace, and holy joy,
The Saviour died for me. [Refrain]
