1 Come, shout and sing, make Heaven ring
With praises to our King,
Who bled and died, was crucified,
That he might pardon bring.
His blood doth save the soul,
Doth cleanse and make it whole,
The blood of Jesus cleanses white as snow.

Refrain:
O the blood of Jesus cleanses white as snow, yes, I know!
I bless the happy day,
When he washed my sins away,
The blood of Jesus cleanses white as snow.

2 Come, join our band, and make a stand
To drive sin from our land;
To do or die, our battle cry,
We fight at God’s command.
With banner wide unfurled,
We tell to all the world:
The blood of Jesus cleanses white as snow.

3 The Lord is near when foes appear,
With him we shall not fear,
But fight the fight for God and right,
Nor count the cost too dear.
Then when we come to die,
We’ll shout our battle cry:
The blood of Jesus cleanses white as snow.
