161. The Cleansing Blood

1 Round Christ, the great incarnate God,
My arms of faith and love entwine;
His blood, for ev’ry sinner spilt,
Now cleanseth this poor heart of mine.

Refrain:
Oh yes, his blood for sinners spilt
Now cleanseth me from sin and guilt;
I now have found the healing balm,
In Calv’ry’s precious, bleeding Lamb.

2 Long sin’s disease oppressed my soul,—
The world could give no healing balm,—
But now the wondrous cure I’ve found,
In Christ the sacrificial lamb. [Refrain]

3 A joy to unwashed souls unknown
His cleansing blood has brought to me,
And on my peaceful spirit shines
The light that beams from Calvary. [Refrain]

4 The virtue of my Saviour’s blood
To guilty souls I will proclaim,
With joyful haste I’ll spread abroad
Jesus, the great Physician’s fame. [Refrain]
