170. Hail! Jesus, hail!

1 Hail! Jesus, hail! who for my sake,
Sweat blood from Mary's veins didst take,
And shed it all for me,
And shed it all for me.
Oh, blessed be my Saviour's blood,
My life, my light, my only good,
My life, my light, my only good,
To all eternity.

2 To endless ages let us praise Thee
Precious Blood whose price could raise
The world from wrath and sin,
The world from wrath and sin.
Whose streams our inward thirst appease,
And heal the sinner's worst disease,
And heal the sinner's worst disease,
If he but bathe therein.

3 O, sweetest Blood that can implore
Pardon of God, and heaven restore,--
The heaven which sin had lost,
The heaven which sin had lost:
While Abel's blood for vengeance pleads,
What Jesus shed still intercedes,
What Jesus shed still intercedes,
For those who wrong Him most.

4 Ah! there is joy amid the Saints,
And hell's despairing courage faints,
When this sweet song we raise,
When this sweet song we raise:
Oh, louder, then, and louder still,
Earth with one mighty chorus fill,
Earth with one mighty chorus fill,
The Precious Blood to praise!
