Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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]
