Representative Text

1 I stood in amaze and wonder,
That God should forgive my sin!
That evil of heart and evil of life,
Salvation I still may win!

Refrain:
‘Tis the wonderful blood, the blood of my Lord
That purges my sin and cleanses my soul!
‘Tis the wonderful blood, marvelous flood,
That saves me and makes me whole.

2 I stood in perverse rebellion,
Denying my Lord’s control;
The Saviour’s sweet call, the Spirit’s low plea,
Brought hope to my sin-sick soul. [Refrain]

3 The blood of my Lord has cleansed me,
Day breaks on my soul’s dark night;
Once foul, now I’m clean, once dead, now I live,
Once blind, I have found my sight. [Refrain]

4 O tell of its pow’r transforming,
Wherever men yearn for peace;
The erring it guides, brings strength to the weak,
For sin gives complete release. [Refrain]
