1 I know it was the blood,
I know it was the blood,
I know it was the blood for me.

Refrain:
One day when I was lost
He died upon the cross.
I know it was the blood for me.

2 They whipped Him all night long,
They whipped Him all night long,
They whipped Him all night long for me. [Refrain]

3 They pierced Him in His side,
They pierced Him in His side,
They pierced Him in His side for me. [Refrain]

4 He never said a mumblin' word,
He never said a mumblin' word,
He never said a mumblin' word for me. [Refrain]

5 He hung His head and died,
He hung His head and died,
He hung His head and died for me. [Refrain]

6 He's coming back again,
He's coming back again,
He's coming back again for me. [Refrain]
