Representative Text

1 For my sins is pardon found,
In the blood;
There is balm for ev’ry wound
In the blood;
Sinful souls, by grief oppressed,
Come to Christ and be at rest,
Thro’ the blood, thro’ the cleaning blood.

In the blood of the Lamb
There is pardon full and free,
There is hope for you and me;
In the blood of the Lamb
Who was slain on Calvary.

2 Here we learn that God is love,
Thor’ the blood;
Sending mercy from above,
Thro’ the blood;
Taking all our gloom away,
Turning night to brightest day,
Thro’ the blood, thro’ the precious blood. [Refrain]

3 There is hope for all mankind,
In the blood;
There is sight for sinful blind,
In the blood,
For the hearts in deep despair
There is sweetest solace there,
In the blood, in the healing blood. [Refrain]
