Representative Text

1 I have been to Jesus to be cleans’d with pow’r,
In the blood, precious blood,
And I linger at the fount this very hour,
At the fount of Jesus’ blood.

Refrain:
I am washed in the blood,
In the heart-cleansing blood of the Lamb;
I am washed in the blood,
I am washed in the blood of the Lamb.

2 I will walk in meekness at my Saviour’s side,
O the blood, the precious blood,
I will trust each moment in the Crucified,
O the blood, the precious blood. [Refrain]

3 I will keep unspotted from the world and sin,
Thro’ the blood, the precious blood,
In the fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
In the fount of Jesus’ blood. [Refrain]
