Representative Text

1 I was once lost in sin, and impure within,
But the Saviour said unto me,
I will cleanse thy soul and thou shalt be made whole,
Then He spake and I was free.

I am saved thro' the blood,
I am saved thro' Jesus' blood,
I am saved from sin, and wretchedness within,
Hallelujah! I am saved thro' the blood.

2 I obeyed then His voice, made the Lord my choice,
And He saved my own guilty soul,
Hallelujah! God thro' Jesus' precious blood,
Can make the wounded whole. [Chorus]

3 'Twas by faith in His word that my voice He heard,
And by faith in Him I endure,
As a child of grace I'll run the Christian race,
And the prize at last secure. [Chorus]
