Full Text

1 I am under the blood of Jesus,
Shed on Calvary long ago;
Here my sins, tho’ they be like crimson,
Shall be washed whiter than the snow.

Refrain:
I’m under the blood of Jesus,
Peace, blessed peace with God;
I’m under the blood of Jesus,
Under the precious blood.

2 I am under the blood of Jesus,
For it cleanseth from every stain;
In the fountain the Saviour opened,
Life eternal from Him I gain. [Refrain]

3 I am under the blood of Jesus,
All my darkness has passed away;
Golden sunbeams are shining o’er me,
Happy fore-gleams of heav’nly day. [Refrain]

4 I am under the blood of Jesus,
Here shall be my abiding place,
Till I’m called to behold His glory,
When transformed by His matchless grace. [Refrain]
