11935. When He Shed His Blood

1 On the cruel cross they nailed Him,
There to die in agony;
But He gave His life a ransom,
Just to set sin’s captives free.

When He shed His blood,
When He shed His blood,
Then He ransomed me
For eternity,
When He shed His blood.

2 In His love He came to suffer,
All the fallen to redeem;
Mercy’s offer still is open,
Still there’s life in Calvary’s stream. [Refrain]

3 In ourselves we merit nothing,
All our works must be in vain;
Only through the blood of Jesus,
Can we life eternal gain. [Refrain]

4 What a wonderful salvation!
What a depth of love is shown,
In the sacrifice of Jesus,
In the blood that does atone. [Refrain]
