Representative Text

1. I have found a precious resting place
In the shelter of redeeming grace;
Here with joy I see my Savior’s face,
Under the atoning blood.

Under the atoning blood of the Lamb,
Under the atoning blood of the Lamb,
Safely I am hiding, constantly abiding,
Under the atoning blood.

2. Where shall I the praise of Christ begin?
Gone the heavy burden of my sin!
Grace has changed the world I’m living in,
Under the atoning blood. [Refrain]

3. Evil shall not here my soul ensnare;
Tenderly I’m kept with jealous care.
Jesus walks beside me everywhere,
Under the atoning blood. [Refrain]

4. Now its healing power makes me whole;
Through its merit Jesus saves my soul.
Savior, keep me while the ages roll
Under the atoning blood. [Refrain]
