Representative Text

1 I brought my sins to Calvary,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus;
There He in mercy set me free,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus.

Refrain:
They are covered by the blood, covered by the blood,
Covered by the blood of Jesus;
Tho’ crimson were my sins I know,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus.

2 My woes are buried ‘neath the tide,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus;
Beneath the fountain deep and wide,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas my transgressions that He bore,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus;
Now He remembers them no more,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 The burdens that my soul opprest,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus;
He took them all and gave me rest,
They are covered by the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]
