344. Glory be to Jesus

1 Glory be to Jesus,
who in bitter pains,
poured for me the life blood
from his sacred veins.

2 Grace and life eternal
in that blood I find;
blest be his compassion
infinitely kind.

3 Blessed through endless ages
be the precious stream,
which from endless torment
did the world redeem.

4 Abel's blood for vengeance
pleaded to the skies;
but the blood of Jesus
for our pardon cries.

5 Oft as it is sprinkled
on our guilty hearts,
Satan in confusion
terror-struck departs.

6 Oft as earth exulting
wafts its praise on high,
angel hosts rejoicing
make their glad reply.

7 Let us lift our voices,
swell the mighty flood;
louder still and louder
praise the precious blood.
