Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I was lost in sin when I heard Him say,
By the blood, the precious blood,
You shall see the light of eternal day,
By the blood, the precious blood.

Refrain:
Blessed tho’t! my soul is saved
By the blood, the precious blood!
I will tell it to the world,
Christ has saved me by the blood.

2 Oh, the happy day when He cleansed my soul,
By the blood, the precious blood,
How I felt the pow’r when He made me whole,
By the blood, the precious blood. [Refrain]

3 I am saved by grace, Jesus did it all,
By the blood, the precious blood,
He will save all who on His name doth call,
By the blood, the precious blood. [Refrain]

4 I am walking now in the blessed way,
By the blood, the precious blood,
All my night is turned into perfect day,
By the blood, the precious blood. [Refrain]
