1 The blood of Jesus cleanseth me,
I have the victory;
From ev’ry trace of sin I’m free,
I have the victory;
On wings of love my soul mounts high’r,
I have the victory;
I’ve found in Him my heart’s desire,
I have the victory.

Refrain:
Oh! hallelujah! shout with me,
I have the victory;
The blood of Jesus cleanseth me,
I have the victory;
The blood, the blood, my only plea,
I have the victory;
The blood, the blood, it cleanseth me,
I have the victory.

2 Tho’ in the fiery furnace tried,
I have the victory;
With Jesus now I’m crucified,
I have the victory;
Triumphant in my heart I sing,
I have the victory;
My trophies all to Him I bring,
I have the victory. [Refrain]

3 With freedom now from inbred sin,
I have the victory;
While Jesus reigns supreme within,
I have the victory;
Tho’ unseen pow’rs of Hell awake,
I have the victory;
No foes can e’er my courage shake,
I have the victory. [Refrain]

4 He’s taken all my doubts away,
I have the victory;
And keeps me by His pow’r each day,
I have the victory;
Tho’ thousands fall at my right hand,
I have the victory;
I’ve found the grace wherein I stand,
I have the victory. [Refrain]
