1. Hallelujah for the blood, for the sin-cleansing fountain,
For the Lamb has been slain, and the ransom price paid;
Fully cancelled was the debt, when on Calvary’s mountain
All the sins of this world upon Jesus were laid.
There was no arm to save, there was no eye to pity,
Until Jesus our Savior from glory came down;
He was mighty to save, He was strong to deliver,
He has brought us salvation, a robe and a crown;
Hallelujah, hallelujah, sing the triumphant strain;
Hallelujah, for the blood and the Lamb that was slain.
2. Hallelujah for the blood; sing for joy, all ye nations,
And rejoice that the work of redemption is done;
Here is pardon free for all, and a perfect salvation
Through the sin-cleansing blood of the Crucified One.
3. Hallelujah for the blood, hallelujah forever!
We shall sing it anew in the kingdom of God,
Where the anthems of delight shall be silent, no, never;
Evermore hallelujah for Christ and the blood.
