Representative Text

1. I sought in tears my Savior’s cross,
He turned and looked on me:
Behold, He said, the crimson fount
Where flows My blood for thee!

O precious blood! oh, hallowed blood!
Thy sacred fount I see;
It cleanseth all, whoever will;
Praise God, it cleanseth me.

2. With trembling step, beneath its flood
I plunged my guilty soul,
That now redeemed, can shout aloud—
His blood has made me whole! [Refrain]

3. O, love divine, where shall my tongue
Its song of praise begin?
The precious blood of Christ, my Lord,
Has covered all my sin. [Refrain]

4. It gave me life, it gave me joy!
With perfect healing power
It saved through faith my broken heart,
And saves me every hour. [Refrain]
