1 How bright the Hope that Calv’ry brings,
Where Love divine with Mercy blends;
How full the joy that all may find,
Where flows the Blood can save and cleanse.

Refrain:
I am glad there is cleansing in the Blood,
I am glad there is cleansing in the Blood,
Tell the world, all the world,
There is cleansing in the Saviour’s Blood.

2 ‘Tis there! ‘tis there the soul may go,
And wash its sins and stains away;
Who gives up all,—who comes by Faith,
This cleansing finds without delay. [Refrain]

3 Speak, speak to Zion’s burdened ones,
Lead, lead them up to Calv’ry’s Mount;
The want of aching hearts is met,
‘Tis cleaning in Redemption’s Fount. [Refrain]

4 Why need we struggle on in self,
We cannot make one black spot white;
‘Tis Christ’s own Blood, and that alone
Can change and cleanse the heart aright. [Refrain]

5 I come! I come! and glad I am
That Jesus calls the lost and vile;
There thousands have a cleansing found,
I’ll heed the Saviour’s welcome smile. [Refrain]
