1 I knew that God in His Word had spoken,
The pow'r of sin can all be broken,
The heart held captive yet be free,
Lord, is this blessing not for me?

The blood the blood is all my plea,
Hallelujah! it cleanseth me;
The blood the blood is all my plea,
Hallelujah! it cleanseth me.

2 Must I go on in sin and sorrow,
Today in sunshine, clouds tomorrow?
First I'm sinning, then repenting,
Now I'm stubborn, then relenting. [Chorus]

3 With anguish wrung, I cried, "My Lord,
Is there not pow'r in Jesus' blood
To make in me a perfect cure,
To cleanse my heart and keep it pure?" [Chorus]

4 "Oh, yes, the blood applied within
Will cleanse your heart from ev'ry sin,
And wash away your guilty stains,
And cleanse till not one spot remains." [Chorus]
